Yellow Bird finished.....

and I'm sorry that I can't get a better picture of it.  This La D Da design is a sweet design but I have to admit....it was boring and I'm very happy that it's finished.  Now unto the next project which is a little different.  I was at Joann Etc today and came across this bolt of fabric.  It's linen and it looks like about 28ct. and it's a beautiful chocolate brown.  I'm gonna try and stitch a small design on it to finish it into a biscornu.  When I'm finished with it, we'll draw a name and I'll send a small piece to one of you ladies so you can try it.
I mailed Mouse her Scissor chart today so I expect she'll receive it in about a week.  I can't wait to see how she finishes hers.  I'm really happy about how I framed mine and I like seeing my scissors out there in the open.  I had them in a little basket before but wasn't really crazy about it.  I'm looking for one of those "flower frogs" that I've seen on french blogs.  I haven't checked out ebay yet but if anyone knows who has them for sale, I'll really appreciate you letting me know.
Blessings as always,
Barbara

Lovely finish, you can find the flower frogs at antique stores, they are usually reasonably priced.
