Tiny Treasures Scissors Fobs

Not only did I receive my scissors fob but the one I sent was also received this week on the Tiny Treasures exchange. First up, here's the one I received from Lori. It says "Home is Best" - I couldn't agree with her more!

My partner was Estrella in Cordoba, Spain. Estrella doesn't have a blog, but Sharon was kind enough to send me some of her likes and dislikes. In the end, I decided to stitch a hardanger fob for Estrella. It has eyelets stitched on one side and the initial "E" on the other. I used some colorful Needle Necessities #8 perle cotton from my stash. There are also some beads stitched on this fob, but they don't show up in the photo!


It's my month for ornaments and a special one arrived from Edgar today. I am going to save this picture for tomorrow's post.

Until then -- stay warm and happy stitching!
