I've Made It!



Project Challenge is complete!!! Woo Hoo! Here's a scissor fob I created for Mo in the UK. I finished it on 2/2/07, but didn't want to show it until she got the package. She finally received it today... and I'm glad she likes it! *whew* It's stitched on 14ct Fiddler's Cloth aida. The front is a motif from Prairie Schooler Book 17 "Woodland Sampler". The back came from Cross Country Stitching Alphabets Special Issue 1999. I changed all the colors to coordinate, using Six Strand Sweets floss. The cording is handmade from DMC floss.


Here's the breakdown of the projects I completed for the challenge:

1. Therapy Bookmark
2. Cardinal Snowflake Ornament
3. Freedom
4. Yummy Gingerbread Man Ornament
5. Santa Ornament
6. Gingerbread House Ornament
7. Ascot Albert Ornament
8. Winnie the Pooh Bookmark "Let's Bee Friends"
9. Brass Hummingbird Bookmark
10. Scissor Fob

Here's the fob Mo made for me. It's called "In My Garden" by Shepherd's Bush. Turned out lovely, didn't it?
