Beaded Scissor Fobs and some Stash

I’ve just managed to pop into the lounge to take photos of the scissor fobs I made last night – as you can see from the main photo, they ended up a real mixed bag in terms of length … there definitely will be more coming ‘cos they’re so much fun to make!Β  Now I know why some of my other stitching pals (Hi Cindy!) find these so addictive!! πŸ˜€

And here’s an individual photo of each fob so you can see the bead choices more clearly.

I really do need to go shopping to get more clear beads etc, though, as I have an over-abundance of blue beads (funny that!) but not so many ‘fillers’ … I’m soooooo tempted to go back to the craft show today!! πŸ˜›

And finally, here’s all I have to show from the Craft & Quilt Fair yesterday – including a piece of the world’s largest ric-a-rac, and some more Swiss lace for Shepherd’s Bush needlerolls (can never have too much!!), and my squillions of ‘pandora’ beads … many of these beads are destined for other uses, eg fobs, but I did buy a bracelet while I was there yesterday too … and yes, there is rather an overload of turquoise and blue!! πŸ˜‰

Finally, here’s the sum total of my week’s stitching – one more tiny addition to Chatelaine’s Stitching Leporello. I just had the border left to stitch and the beads/metallics on it’s companion piece, which will hopefully be finished by the end of tonight … after that I will be trying to make some more progress during the week of my Sweetheart Tree UFO, Wildflowers Needleroll (which I started here in the flat while waiting for my furniture to arrive!).

And now I’m about to, sadly, mark all my feeds as read in my feedreader, as it’s depressing the heck out of me – I’ve been trying hard to catch up on the backlog, but still have over 1700 unread feeds … I’m finally going to bite the bullet and wipe the slate clean, so I can continue to keep up with everyone’s news without feeling overwhelmed every day. I’ve been meaning to do this for a while but couldn’t bring myself to do it … but today is the day! I want to get back to commenting regularly again! So, in advance, I apologise if I’ve missed any major personal news, but I look forward to reading about you all regularly again πŸ˜€

  1. what an interesting way to use beads. they look very nice.
    what do you attach the fobs to- actual scissors, or something else?
    i think that’s an awesome way to use some leftover beads. i have an abundance of pink beads right now. this may be something i could get used to. i promised myself no more buying beads until i use the ones i have, hehe πŸ™‚

  2. Your fobs are lovely! That is something I have wanted to try, but just haven’t yet.

    I just did the same thing with my Google Reader. It was hard to do, but catching up wasn’t going to happen.

  3. Your scissor fobs are wonderful. Do you sell them? I would buy one or two in a minute if they were for sale.

  4. Your scissor fobs are gorgeous! Love the giant ric-rac in your show stash – do you have a plan for it or will we just have to wait and see?

  5. Hi Anne πŸ˜€ Love your beaded fobs! Gorgeous and as far as I’m concerned you can never have too much blue in anything πŸ˜€

  6. thanks Anne. I get it now. Once again, very interesting and great to look at. Thanks for replying πŸ™‚

  7. Oh my word! Look at all that GORGEOUS scissor jewelry!! I’d be changing my fobs daily!! How fun! beautiful beads and I love that ric rac! Congrats on so many beautiful finishes…and the CSL flower is beautiful with your floss choices:)

  8. These are great beaded fobs, the colours and beads are beautiful. Looks like you had a great time at the show. These are great purchases!

  9. Beautiful scissor fobs!

    I am having the same dilemma about my feed reader. I keep thinking that I’ll get caught up, but it never happens!

  10. Leporello looks great, I love the colors. And your fobs are to dye for Anne, well done. LOL at all of the blue and turquoise.

  11. Mmmmm, the fabric, beads and everything together is absolutley lovely! I know how addictive beads can be, but I’ve never done anything but Mill Hill kits. I would love to make the fobs. They’re gorgeous, Anne! Thanks for sharing with us!
