Thanks to all who have visited my blog recently - and thanks to those who have left comments!
Cindy - the Hardanger hear scissors fob is an adaptation of a pattern from Pure Heart Designs (Lacy Bookmarks I). There were a series of five hearts that made a bookmark. I just took one of the five hearts to make the scissors fob. Thanks for asking!
Today was a great mail day. As I pulled into the driveway I could see a box sitting on the chair next to the front door. It was a teal colored box, so I knew immediately that it was from Myrna (Myrna had posted a picture of the box on her blog!) This was for the Grab Bag Exchange on the U.S. Exchange Board. Myrna went all out - the theme was "blue" and everything was packed in a blue bag. There were beads, a scissors, Silkweaver fabric, a candle, some chocolates, blue DMC floss, Homespun Elegance pattern, Blueberry lotion - oh my gosh, the list goes on and on. Thanks Myrna - you are awesome! Here's a picture:
As long as I had the camera out, I took a picture of the Hardanger valance I stitched a few years ago. It hangs on the window over my kitchen sink:
Tonight I went to my LNS for a stitch-in. I rarely have time to do this since Thursday nights I'm usually at choir practice - our director and his wife are adopting a baby from Russia and so all choir rehearsals are cancelled until September! I stitched the scissors fob to go along with Apricot Elegance. I hope to finish the fob this weekend!
Take care everyone!
