Holly & Ivy ScissorKeep

For the LHN/CNN Exchange, I finished the Holly & Ivy Sampler from Country Cottage Needleworks into a scissor keep for Suzanna. The scissor shield is glued to the interior to prevent the scissor from poking thru the stitched piece.

Holiday Exchange - Easter

You don't find this design any where... I decided to create my own stitch pattern for this exchange. After plouging thru my stack of stitching magazines, craft books  for inspirations...... and this design is born. It's stitched one-over one on a 28 count evenweave. I finishes it with magnetic squares to house the needle threader and needles; and handmade the tassle. Hope you like it Barbara :).
Hmmm... I should have use a digital cam rather than my phone. The pictures did not turn out well here.

HOE2 - LHN/CNN Exchange Received

Received this beautiful work from Jayne.  :) The stitch pattern is part of  'Morning Berries' by LHN and Jayne finishes it as a needlecase and a thread tag.... Included are stitching needles, milk chocolate ( yum yum... eating right now... heehee) . Thank you so much Jayne for the wonderful exchange.
