Tickled Pink

Yes, I'm just "tickled pink" over what Melissa sent to me for my request on the Make a Wish board. My request was for anything LHN - exact design and finishing could be the stitcher's choice. Melissa offered to fulfill my wish and it arrived today.

Her design choice is perfect for me - I love patriotic designs. I got a bit of a bonus here - two pieces for the price of one! Both of the designs are from the LHN Heart of America pattern. One is a scissor keeper (I added my Glory scissors for the picture) and the other is floss ring tag. I've admired the scissor keeper finish on other blogs and now that I see Melissa's up close I am inspired to try this for an upcoming exchange. The floss ring tag is pretty cool too! (Sorry for the poor lighting; no natural light to be found - it just continues to rain here!)


Melissa -- many thanks, you made my day!

Off to stitch. Have a good evening everyone!

A lovely exchange from Melissa

Love them both! I've not tried either of those finishes, but I've been thinking about it. Of course I would have to stitch something first! LOL

What a lovely collection! And a good thing that I didn't do what I had originally had planned for your 4th of july exchange...no kidding I was going to use Heart of America to make a sewing smalls set....yikes...that wouldn't have been cool to have two of them! LOL!

Melissa did a wonderful job on your gifts. The piece she used from Heart of America on the scissor case is my favorite little square from the design. I also love the idea of a stitched tag for a thread ring, I may try this one. Enjoy, CJ
