Specific Designer exchange (LHN) - FROM Cathy



Haven't I been spoiled - isn't it lovely. I have been in awe of Cathy's beautiful work for a long time and I felt I was extremely lucky to receive this from her.



The finishing and stitching is just exquisite and I love the way she has personalised the back of the fob. I also received some wonderful goodies including the pair of scissors you can see which have been on my wish list forever. Cathy has trimmed the edges with tiny black beads and has used gorgeous black silk ribbon for the scissor holder part and for the tassel bottom.



Thanks once again Cathy- I really appreciate this wonderful fob.
