My daughter Jenn has come up with a very cute idea. She's designed an alphabet that when stitched makes a very pretty scissor fob. She sent me the "B" and I was to pick my own fabric and fibers and this is what I came up with. The fabric is a 22ct. blue linen and for the stitching I used a DMC variation floss and an Anchor Marlitt. Jenn had queen stitches for the flower but I will admit, I am absolutely terrible at queen stitches. You will notice that I stitch nothing that has them in and I have a beautiful sampler that is loaded with them but I think the chance of me stitching it is just about nil. Instead I did a spider web flower and then used light blue beads around the outside. Jenn has this alphabet available to those who might be interested....just go to her blog here and send her an email.
I also wanted to let whoever might be interested that I have added these DMC Linen Flosses to my Stash Store.
I hope everyone's week has started out great and that you get some quality stitching time. I'm plucking away on Fallen Roses and seem to be making some good headway.
Blessings as always,
