And, They're Off!
*
I finished the final 6 scissor fobs last night and today put quite a few in the mail. WooHoo! Tomorrow I'll finish packaging & mailing the rest. :-) I absolutely love the tag my sweet hubby, Mr Daze, made for me to include in the plastic bags. This way if you receive one you'll know who it's from. LOL Thank you, Sweetie!
*
These 29 fobs are going to 29 blogging friends who made me cry tears of joy last Fall - you know who you are and I thank you for your patience as I decided how to thank you.


If you think you'd like to have a fob made by me stay tuned because I will have a giveaway for 10 fobs for 10 blogging friends very soon. :-)


I spent all day Saturday in my sewing room with my BFF, Miss Molly (my Janome 6600) :-) We did the Fandango all day - well not really but we did work with Fandango by Kate Spain for Moda. :-) It's a secret project so this is all I can show you - I love sneak peeks. LOL

I appreciate your visit - please come again soon. :-)

In Friendship!

Strlady said...

I've been so busy but I needed to stop by and tell you that those little fobs are just adorable!! I love them. Did you take a class on how to make them or just figured it out? I used to have a few on my cell phone but I changed phones and no longer can attach them.. :(
I still love them and love the idea of making my own.

Okay my 'Wonder Quilter', now I have to find another Super Hero name for when your ... umm ... fobbing! 'Wonder Fobber' just doesn't quite roll of the tongue so well, LOL. I'll give this some thought and get back to you on it. I'll be on the look out for your giveaway. I can't think of quilter/stitcher who wouldn't treasure one of your delightful fobs. Hugs...

Stitched With Prayer said...

You and Mr. Daze make a great team. Lucky bloggers to receive your kindness. :o) I heart my Janome 6600 big time. Fandango is fantastic and I can't wait to see your reveal.

PunkiePie said...

I meant to ask you, Darlene... where did you get the charm straps for your fobs? I've looked around for them before in stores but I haven't spotted them. Did you get them online instead? Thanks!

Ivory Spring said...

I saw the scissors fob you made for Carrie (A passion for applique) - it's absolutely beautiful!

tami said...

Those are so cool. What do you use for the top part and can you tell me where to get them? I have been wanting to mark my scissors with fobs and love those.

Dianne said...

Hello;
I saw your scissor fob on Sweet Pea's blog and wondered where you found the hardware for them. I made scissor fobs for my retiring executive a couple of years ago and had to improvise because I couldn't find those barrel dealymabobs (yes that is a technical term lol)with the ring on them. If you would be willing to send me the info I am at djritter@telus.net BTW I love your blog!
