My first Scissor Fob

This is the American Star Fob by Sweetheart Tree.

The stitching itself didn't take very long, but the finishing sure did! As my dear friend Collette in England would say "it was very fiddly!"

It was stitched on 32 count linen, with DMC floss and Mill Hill Beads. The star charms are from Sweetheart Tree.

Oh my! You did a fantastic job! I've seen this chart but was a bit put off by the finishing it would take. Well done!

Sigh.....children....sigh.....

This is the year of doing charts for me! ME! I always stitch things for everyone else, but this year I am stitching for me. The flip its are all on one piece of fabric and will be framed, as it is not very big. The teapots will be made into a quilted wall hanging to be hung in my new sewing/stitching room someday when you know who moves out.

Love you to sweetie!
Mom
