July Ornie SAL



This is my July ornament, well really this one is a fob, but I'm counting it in the ornies - again its another EEF this time this one is called Rose Basket fob.
I stitched this on 36ct white linen and used almost all the recommended threads but changed the basket colour and used a very pale overdye for the pale eyelet stitch. Again I have used a beaded trim I had in my stah - I like this trim and added a narrow white ribbon for the scissors to fasten too.

I love your stitching work, but something that also strikes me as well is your photography! What is your secret? Your pictures are better than most I see on charts or in magazines!

Your fob is beautiful and the trim is such a nice addition. Ann.

Another beauty, Su! I always did like your finishes, even when I first started visiting your gallery at Cyberstitchers. I always admired your work, but never dared to comment, because I felt such an inadequate klutz compared to you! Still do, actually.

Cathy said...

I always look forward to seeing your finishes - you do such a great job! The beading on this fob looks great!

Lelia said...

WOW! Beautiful fob! The Dovo Scissors look wonderful with the basket of flowers. The colors are perfect. Nice addition of the beaded trim.
