Another Finish!

I just had to finish this up yesterday.  It turned out fine.  It is a scissors holder.  Easy peasey.  Worked on banding and I didn't even change anything.  Well, actually I used two strands instead of one of the green so the lazy daisy stitches would look more even.  Oh yeah, I added some gold around the scissors.  And I sewed it together on the sewing machine. I can't help myself, I have to change things!

I'm being good today.  I didn't buy a cinnamon roll at the Farmer's Market.  I only bought one piece of candy. (I usually buy their $10 special).
I worked a bit on the Ode pre-stitching.  I was deciding what color floss and what font to use for my Jane Austen saying.  I decided to go the Anne Hathaway route.  I stitched Anne Hathaway's house (Needlemade Designs) a couple years ago and loved the font and the floss color.
So I went looking for the project.  Couldn't find it. It is lost among things in one of the curio cabinets.  So I went looking for the pattern.  It took a while but I found it.

I made a copy of the words and then cut out letters and taped them together.

I was wondering whether this mess would turn out.  So then I had to figure out how to center it on the inside of the needleroll.  And I started stitching.  Even though it is over one, I like it.  It is the right size and the right color.
