Scissor Fob Exchange Received!


I received this lovely fob today from Sharon in the Friends Gather Scissor Fob exchange! I am pretty sure it's a Whimsey & Wit design (? Sharon?) and she stitched my initials on the back!!!! Isn't it pretty? I love it.... and I needed a pick-me-up today like you wouldn't believe! She also sent the other goodies shown as well. Thank you Sharon for a lovely stitched gift and the extra goodies too!



One I sent was received today.... this one was for Vonna in USEBB Summer Quaker. In the info when signing up, she posted that she thought of Sunflowers & Geraniums for summer, so I decided to stitch it in gold, but I also included some nice red silk (and a few other goodies) for her as well. It was a fun stitch but I wasn't totally happy with the end result of my finishing. It was my first "Tin", but she says she likes it, so that makes me happy!

Hope everyone is finding lots of time to stitch. Not much here but I have decided on a couple of exchange pieces. Now to pull the threads & cut the fabric and start them....

Happy stitching,
Amy
