It's Small but it's Still a Finish!

I've been working on finishing an exchange gift for the Beginner's Exchange on the U.S. Exchange Board, so unfortunately you will have to wait for pictures on that one.

Tonight I finished a quick small - a Hardanger scissors fob! It's heart shaped and done on pink Hardanger fabric with some leftover Needle Necessities floss that I had (great project for using up left over fabric and floss!) I used pre-made cording and for the first time ever, inserted a 2006 quarter to give it weight. Isn't it cute? I'll be making more of these!

Your Hardanger scissors fob is so cute....lovely. :-)
It's great that there are 2 more participants in our little SAL. I now Lelia's blog but I think, I have never visited Myrna's. Could you send me the link to hers?

Cathy, this is a terrific little project and ideal for those who'd like to try hardanger, but are a little scared by it. This design is small with no tricky needleweaving - a gentle introduction.
All the hardanger wannatries out there - this is your project, lol!
Great job Cathy!

Beautiful, Cathy! I like the pretty pink on pink and the weight of putting a quarter in when finishing it was a great idea!

That's lovely! Good idea about the quarter for weight. I've just been reading through the archives of your blog and you've made me want to do some hardanger, you evil evil enabler! hahaha.

btw, I love that cloth on the table :)
