LHN - Holly & Berries scissor Fob



I completed my first scissor Fob. I used
the pattern from LHN Holly & Berries.
This for an exchange and a group I
belong to called Hooked on Exchanging.
AKA HOE. I wanted to make this a
special piece for the person receiving
it. It really came out nice. 8th Finish
of the year.

Pear Tree - By LHN



Pear Tree Pattern by LHN
This pattern really surprised me.
It is really much prettier when the piece is
done. I made this into a little pillow piece
that I can put anywhere. I added mill hill beads.
When putting the finishing touches on the piece
to go to my stash to see what I have to finish it with.
You always think you don't have anything. The
fabric was perfect and the yellow cording really
put a finishing touch. I highly recommend this
piece for stitching. This piece was done
on 28 ct. Opalescent white cashel linen. I
think this was the last piece of the fabric I have.
My 7th piece of the year completed.

Red Exchange received



Received my Red exchange today from Nicola

to put it on my list. Thank you Nicola.

Exchange finished





This two sided ornament was done for an
exchange. Done on the 28 ct opalescent
white cashel linen. The theme was a
red exchange. I added green mill hill
beads to make it stand out. It is the
first time I did a two sided ornament. It
was a challenge for me. It is not perfect
but I do like the results. I hope the person
who receives it enjoys it. I went out of my
comfort zone for this one. 6th finish of
the year.

Received a package in the mail yesterday.
I was a winner of a giveaway. Mare
