Happy Birthday to Rhonda

 Remember a few months ago when I stitched Linda's Ort Bag for Rhonda?  Well today is her birthday and I can finally show you what I had made for her "special day".
I used the same fabric ....  28ct. Waterlilly Jobelan and the same Gloriana Silks and came up with a design that I took from the ort bag and turned it into a biscornu.  
I also made a little pouch for the little gold scissors I gave her with matching scissor fob.  Also on the back of the scissor case, there is a piece of matching wool felt where she can store her needle when not in use.

What is not shown on the above pictures is that JABC has these darling little stick pins out that are candles and I included them in the pincushion so it looked like a decorated birthday cake.  I wish I had taken a picture of them but oh well.  
I hope Rhonda has a very special day!!
I am working on a give away and will announce it soon so stay in touch.
Blessings as always,
Barbara
