DMC Scented Floss

Can you believe this?

Imagine lavender-scented lavender floss tags, lemon-scented lemons on an apron . . .

I belong to the DMC Club online and received an email about their new scented floss. I really need this! Especially the floral scented ones. My gifts would be even more appreciated when stitched with this, as I do a lot of flower motifs.

DMC says the scent will last through 20 washings, but most of my stitchery does not get washed after being received. I hope this means that the scent will last a long time.

Winter Quaker Needlebook

This is the Winter Quaker needlebook that I stitched for Melissa (HOE exchange). I was getting worried because it took a long time to get to its destination. I chose the colors of winter skies and clouds. It is DMC on white linen.

This is a freebie design from Carinne. I love this design and want to stitch it for myself.

Winter Quaker from Karen D.

This is the pretty quaker snowman floss tag that I received from Karen D. in the HOE Winter Quaker exchange.

Unfortunately, the light was not good for the photo. It's stitched with white floss on a sparkly blue evenweave (possibly hand-dyed Lugana).

Mail Art from Cari

This is the mail art envelope that I received from Cari in the HOE exchange. Isn't it pretty?

My March Biscornu

This is my biscornu for March for the Basket of Biscornu SAL. It is a tiny biscornu (DMC variegated floss on linen) that I fashioned into a fob.

The pattern is #180 from Plate 19, "Celtic Charted Designs," by Co Spinhoven (Dover Publications).

Tod Jeffers Passes Away

Well, I've been sad all day since hearing that Wheeling, WV radio station WKKX lost ANOTHER talk show host.

According to news reports, (Charles) Tod Jeffers passed away at his home sometime Saturday eve/Sunday early am.

On his show he was funny, had witty remarks for every situation, and told great stories.

He will be missed.
