Two small finishes

I have a couple of small finishes to share this time that I haven't been able to show until now. They were made as little gifts and are now with their new owners.
First is A Rosey Year scissor fob by Shepherds's Bush. I thought this was perfect for Francoise who adores all things pink :)
It's very small so you'll probably see it better if you click on the picture for a better view.
Next is a small pincushion from the Blackbird Designs book A Needle and Thread.
Heidi has a love of the countryside and somehow this little bird seemed just right for her.
I tea dyed the trim on the pincushion because I couldn't find any that was not garish in colour and I used fabric from the Blackbird Designs Sweet Romance line to back it.
This will probably be my last post this year as we leave for UK on Thursday 20th and will not return to Spain until 1st January.
Before I go I want to thank each and every one of you for your wonderful friendship and for all the nice comments you've left on my blog. Blogging wouldn't be any fun at all without YOU so thanks for stopping by.
I wish everyone all the very best for the holiday season. Good health and happiness in 2008 and above all a productive year whatever your chosen crafts.

I cannot thank you enough for my wonderful gift!!! I just love it.

I also think the fob for Francoise is so perfect. I am sure she loves it as it is so pretty and pink.

Hugs ~

Gorgeous Margaret, but then all your work is beautiful. Hope you have a wonderful time back in the UK, stay warm and safe and I look forward to your return.

Margaret what beautiful gifts! You put so much thought into what you give because like you, I think these definitely reflect the personalities of Francoise and Heidi. They are lovely! Your work is always nothing less than perfection.

Happy Holidays,

What wonderful finishes. Your work is ALWAYS so beautifully finished. I'm sure the 'gals' are ecstatic with their prezzies! I love both those designs very much but I especially love the little phrase on the back of Francoise's fob :>)
Have a safe journey and hope to chat to you in England.
Hugs, Angela

That pineapple thing, the one you crocheted, is awesome! I could never make anything like that.
