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.
