HoE LHN Exchange

My LHN exchange from Brigitte arrived yesterday! She used elements from the Morning Berries chart to create this beautiful scissor case! Isn't it wonderful? So delicate - stitched and finished perfectly! Brigitte send along a stork scissors for the case, a German chart with the floss, some wonderful linen, and a notepad with a cross stitch design on it. She totally spoiled me! Vielen Dank for a wonderful exchange Brigitte. Es ist wunderbar! Here are pictures of this delectable scissor case:




Saturday's Finishing Frenzy!

I don't know what got into me yesterday, but I was determined to finish all those little stitched things that have been sitting around waiting to be made into something special. I succeeded in finishing everything that was not Christmas related! A total of eight items! Now only six of them are pictured here because two of them are gifts, but you will see all of them eventually. Here's a group photo. I'm going to save the individual shots for during the week (that way I'll have something to post each day! LOL)

You have such good taste, Cathy! I've either stitched or have in my stash everything there except that intriguing crow pinkeep at the bottom. Who's the designer/what the design?? Gotta know!!

And, you can come over to my house with that finishing frenzy anytime! ;)

I really like that scissor pocket.You also did a great job with your finishing. Maybe seeing your Blackbird design done will help me to get mine sewn together.

Nice scissor pocket! Great finishing also. It must have been a weekend for that as I did a bunch of it myself yesterday. What pattern is that long skinny pillow on the bottom of the picture? I love it!
