I did encounter a problem with this one, as I said, because Beth turned the floral piece next to the turkey sideways on the chart (keep in mind she designed these pieces to be used on smalls so it doesn't matter for that how it's put in the chart, but if you are doing small samplers you don't want one motif to be turned sideways. So I took one motif out and used it on the scissor fob, and then turned the floral piece so it's sitting properly on my sampler and I did add 2018 down the side next to the floral piece just to fill in space. And to be honest, I did stitch a different squirrel as I wasn't fond of the primitive squirrel Beth used. This is the first time I've done that as I have loved most elements Beth has used on the rest of her Festive Fobs....And as with all of these mini samplers, I added a mini charm in the empty space beside the alphabet...in this case a mini acorn. There are around 11 of these Festive Little Fob patterns and I'm on track to stitch every one of them. Great designs and fun, fast projects. .Since February is right around the corner, I've decided to do the Valentine Edition. Let the fun begin. I've also got a Brenda Gervais Snowman to start...picked the fabric today..using 20 ct. over 2 so it's going to be one of the big pillows....such fun to do.
