I heard today



that Svenja has received the SBEBB - Stitching smalls piece that I stitched for her, I am so pleased that she liked it. I decided to stitch a scissor case by Au fils des Reves, and I chose my own lining which I had in my stash drawer and finished it slightly differently than was directed too.



I padded the inside between the lining fabric and the stitching, I added shell buttons at the fastener and at the bottom and added a tassel, I also put a hand-dyed silk blue ribbon the close the case with.



What a busy week this week with blogging, I think I've posted much more than normal, but wanted everyone to see the beautiful stitching I have received over the week. I won't be posting again now until probably Sunday as I'm off over to the North East to have a girly day out on Saturday with mum and Helen, we are going to Newcastle to a stitch show - can't wait - I can spend my birthday money LOL!! Plus collect my birthday parcels from my mum and my brother, so I really have had a long birthday LOL!!

I'm going tomorrow morning and leaving Mark to fend for himself and the cat - not that he will have a problem his mum taught him well. Have a good weekend everyone!!

Su, the scissor case is exquisite! Have a wonderful time this weekend with your Mum and Helen. My DH does fine on his own too, as long as I have raisin bran cereal in the cupboard. That's the extent of his cooking prowess, lol!

Claire said...

Wonderful and stunning work Su. I always love looking at your pieces and seeing how you finish them off - thought about doing an on-line class??!!

Hugs
