Small Projects

I seem to be on a roll with scissors fobs. Here's the picture of my latest Hardanger fob. The picture doesn't really do it justice - I tried to scan it on my printer. I haven't purchased a digital camera yet! If nothing else, you'll get a feel for the colors - it's a lavendar colored fabric with an overdyed thread from the Caron Collection.

Yesterday, my local needlework shop celebrated it's Grand Opening. I purchased a kit that I've been reading about on other blogs - This Too Shall Pass 2004 Monograms & Motifs Scissors Keep and Scissors Fob. I'm anxious to start on this one!

Thanks to everyone who has visited my blog in recent days - Chelle, Lelia, KarenV, BeckySC, Kiwi Jo, Terri, Barbara, Cathymk - hope I didn't miss anybody!

Happy Stitching this week!

Cathy, your hardanger is awesome. That is one type of needlework I seldom do! You are into fobs right now & I'm trying to finish some much-needed needlebooks. It is all good.

Your fob looks great Cathy :) I've just ordered the This Too Shall Pass scissor keep as part of my Christmas present from DH :)

Cathy, I liked your blog. I haven't stitched samplers in the past, but since I've discovered, Victoria Samplers, Indigo Rose, Drawn Thread and Just Nan, I have been collecting. Right now I'm working on Liz Turner Diehl 16th Century Englist Family Knot Garden. I should post a photo more current as I'm almost done. I love your Patricia Ann, I have 5 of hers!
