Fobs from France!

Just a quick update to say that I was so excited yesterday to receive my February exchange from France!  The rules of the exchange were that it had to be stitched over-one on evenweave (via the EMS Cross Stitch Board at  I received two wonderfully stitched scissor fobs from Chantal in France.  Merci Chantal!!  Here they are: 

It's always such a nice treat to receive something in the mail that isn't a bill! :) 

In other news, my son Karl has injured his leg.  I received a call at work from the school Vice-Principal on Tuesday that he was hurt in gym class and that I needed to come pick him up as he had what they thought was a possible fracture in his lower left leg.  I left work and picked him up right away and went straight to the hospital.  X-ray showed that thankfully it was not broken, but he has a severe bone bruise and is on crutches.  No hockey or skiing for at least two weeks.  He is especially disappointed since he had planned to ski with his grandfather during the March break (week after next) and I doubt he will be able now as the bruised area is right where the top of his ski boot is.  He's being a real trooper about it though! 

I hope you are all having a wonderful week!


  1. Exchanges are so much fun and what lovely fobs you received!

    Sorry to hear about your son's leg, I hope he finds something else cool to do over the March Break!

  2. What lovely fobs! What a bummer about your son's leg. Thank goodness it wasn't broken at least!

  3. Thanks for stopping by my blog. You received a couple of lovely fobs in the exchange. I'll show what I sent and received on my next blog post.

    Sorry about your son. No fun to have it happen during spring break.

  4. France is always a surprise! :-) At least for me that love the country (although only visited Paris, the country culture is amazing, the wine superb and the cheese exquisite ;-) )
    Hope your son gets better soon. Kids have a way of getting better fast than we expect!

  5. Very pretty fobs! I've yet to participate in an exchange. Maybe after I've retired I'll have more time.
    Sorry to hear about your son. However kids heal quickly so I'm sure he'll be back to normal in no time.

  6. Very pretty exchange!!! I hope your son heals up quickly :-)
