Scissor Fob Exchange!!

I participated in the Specific Finish Exchange on the USEBB. The first exchange was a scissor fob. Nancy sent me the most incredible fob!! It is a Drawn Thread design done on 40 ct.!! Isn't it beautiful? I love the beads she added on the bottom!! Nancy also included a beautiful piece of linen and three Six Strand Sweet fibers!! I feel truly spoiled! Thank you Nancy!!

Fob Front:

Fob Back:

The entire goodie package!

And, Nancy has also received the package I sent her! How cool is that -- we had each other's names and didn't even know it! I sent Nancy a 'pink' package! I got the design from the Ellen Maurer-Stroh board, and stitched the freebie scissor keeper with a pink (DMC 3609), on 32ct. Belfast opalescent White. I made the cording (my first time!) and attached a cool tassel that I got at Hobby Lobby -- which is why it was pink!

Here is the fob front:

And the back where I put our initials and the year:

And the 'pink' stuff I sent with it! I love putting these together, and hope Nancy liked it. Half of the fun for me is the package!

I guess that's it for now! I signed up for the Thanksgiving Exchange on the USEBB! I was looking thru my stash, and found the cutest design... And now I have an excellent reason to stitch it!

Stitching on today: Quaker Garden!!

I luv the fobs. And tell Nancy, I'm stealing her finishing idea. I think the beads on the bottom look very nice. [now why didn't I ever think of doing that???] The pink package - fob & all are wonderful! You di a great job on the Maurer-Stroh fob. So pretty!
