Victorian Pansies Scissor Keep

I finished the stitching on this yesterday, and made it into a fob tonight. The design is by Textile Heritage in Scotland. It is stitched on 18ct ecru aida with DMC threads. I made the cording and tassle to coordinate with the colors in the fob. The stitching took approximately 15.25 hours, and the finishing took about and hour and a half.

It's beautiful, I wish that I knew how to do finishings. I have been reading some of the tutorials and I am going to at least give some a try soon, possibly the tie-on pillow.
