Scissor FOB Exchange

This is the first exchange program, which I have signed up at the Rotation Stitching Forum in June. I truly enjoyed the whole process from selecting a suitable design, personalized it along with some small gifts and right up to sending the parcel at the Post Office. ;-)

For my recipient Chris, I selected the design DELFT TULIPS from the Textile Heritage Collection. I replaced the tassel with a golden ribbon as I have problem creating and sewing the tassel to the fob. Generally I am very satisfied with the work done and am pleased that Chris likes it too.

And from my sender Angi, I received this personalized scissor keep sewn using Dinky Dyes - DayDream. It has my initial L sewed in a shimmering fabric material with eyelets and Rhodes square stitches at the 2 sides. However my photo shots are not able to capture the shimmer effect. She also includes a beautiful fairy card and 2 hand-dye threads. I am very glad to receive the floss, as I always wanted to try others. The most common brand found here are DMC and Anchor.
