Lizzie Kate Spring Fob

I love this design by Lizzie Kate from Cross Stitch Crazy magazine June 2005 issue. I stitched it one over one and finished it as a scissor fob. It is definitely Summer here instead of Spring in the Texas area. The two little bees on the pattern are just so cute, one above the flowers, and one on the left side of the birdhouse.

I have some flowers pictures to share that are blooming in my garden:

Thank you so much for all the comments about my pinkeep and there are more to come. Instead of ribbons, there are lots of neat ideas using trims as well.

Anita, the fob looks great! Its summer in Kansas too, though the last two mornings have been really nice and cool. It isn't expected to remain that way though.
I am wondering whether you'll email me about 1 over 1 and if you have a particular way you stitch to keep some of the stitches from sliding or disappearing. Thanks

The fob is so bright and cheerful, and the little bees are cute. Love the flowers too. We are still struggling getting into spring, so I enjoyed seeing your flowers. Hopefully the last of our colder weather will be behind us now for a while.

I lived in Texas from age 12-27 ... east Texas, Dallas, and College Station for my undergrad. Now we're in Philly and I love the Northeast but I miss Texas sometimes!

The over-1 stitching is a great idea - it makes this into a very sweet fob. Your flowers are lovely!
