I like it. I wish I had cooler letters for her name but these ironed on very solidly so she can't pull them off. Then I started on the first page. I made the hands and it didn't look too creepy so I'll go with it (unless DIL doesn't like it).
Next is the flower page. Three flowers button on. I have a great sewing machine that makes very nice buttonholes. My zigzagging around the edge of the flowers is not very even but I don't think it is noticeable. My goal today is the finish page two and go on the page three which is a kitty cat with jingle bells in his bow tie. Whatever.
I was so close to finishing the Erica Micheal's scissors fob when I thought, this is too big to be a scissors fob. Basically I don't like scissors fobs anyway. But one that is too big is not good. So I went back and reread the directions trying to find any place that says to go over one. Maybe I was supposed to go over one on 40 count silk gauze instead of over two. I couldn't find anything. The directions only mentioned the pin cushion and said to go over two using one strand of floss. Then I looked at the picture. The fob is small. My fob is not. Uh-oh. I bet I was supposed to go over one and I went over two. It isn't all my fault as the directions were not clear. Rats. All that work and I totally messed it up. I think I have some more silk gauze somewhere but I'm not going to go looking for it today. Maybe this will be a pin cushion instead of a scissors fob. It is a little discouraging to work on something and have it not turn out as planned.
