A Little Shepherd's Bush Finish

Don't you just love Shepherd's Bush? Her sense of color and form is simply wonderful and a joy to stitch. I so loved stitching this little fellow but I just can't make up my mind how I'm going to finish him. A scissor case? A needlebook? A pinkeep? HELP!!!! For some reason my mind is blank on this one and I really could use some suggestions.

I hope everyone is having a terrific day and has sunshine like we do down here. I sure do feel for those unfortunate people in the northeast with all the rain and flooding they've had to put up with. We sure have had a crazy winter this year and let's hope the summer months are just the opposite....nice and quiet.

Have you all heard that Carriage House is closing her designing doors? We have lost so many of the great designers over the past couple of years and it just breaks my heart. Cathy will be sorely missed.
As always, Barbara

Another beautiful finish Barbara. I think it would make a lovely heart shaped pillow filled with lavender or some other scent.
I'm sure what ever finish you come up with will be just lovely. Look forward to seeing what you do.

Dang it, I didn't see your post until I had finished it into a pinkeep Elaine. It would of been cute finished as a little sachet filled with my favorite fragrance...lavender. Thank you for the suggestion. I will remember this idea for the next one.
