Alyssum Scissor Pocket

My stitching mojo seems to have deserted me over the last week or so (in fact every kind of mojo has, I think, including my blogging mojo) – I’ve been too tired to do much at all, but I forced myself to put the needle to fabric yesterday and put the finishing touches into my scissor pocket.

I have to say I think the silk colour is a strange choice for these scissors, as there is more turquoise blue than the greeney-blue of this silk – I was actually tempted to replace the silk, but then I thought it would be a waste of money, so I just bit the bullet and started stitching …  It may not be the perfect match for the scissors, but I still really love it 🙂

I also made a start on this month’s Christmas ornie late last night, but I may not get it finished by the deadline of Thursday – will give it a go, though.

Just a short post, as I need to finish getting ready for work.

  1. Looks great, Anne! I agree that the colors don’t exactly match the scissors, but hey, it’s still a finished product. 🙂

  2. Hi Anne, I love the scissor pocket, your finishing is really neat…. if you have a minute, take a look at my blog, I took a photo of a shop in Nicosia that I think you would like.

  3. Oh, I LOVE IT : ) I have that kit in my (under-the-bed) box. I have TWO scissor keeper kits. I just HAVE to get them out & finish them. LUV YOURS to pieces.
