Scissors display

 This Cherry Wood Design was a fun stitch but I don't think I'll ever do another one.  I stitched mine on 28ct. natural/cream Graziano linen using an HDF silk called Primordial Ooze.  Doesn't that sound disgusting but I had to try it just because of the name and I love it.  It has sections of black, dark olive green and a gold thru it and it sets off the design beautifully.  
I was up at Kohl's today and came across this black frame.  My original plan was to line a black tray with this finished piece but when I saw this frame, I knew it would be perfect.  The frame came with glass which I left in to protect the stitching.  It has a resting place on my cedar chest where it holds my scissor collection.  All in all.....it came out okay.  
If you would like to receive this pattern.....because I know I'll never do it again....just leave a comment to this post and I'll draw a name next monday night.
Blessings as always,
Barbara

That's an awesome finish for that design - well done!! I haven't used Ooze yet - I have a skein or two (I think), waiting for that special project - this was a great fit for it! So I guess you could throw my name in the bowl, too :)
