I was so excited when NatalieJo opened her on-line stitching shop and knew immediately which one I was going to do first when I saw them there on screen for the first time.
Just to tease - here is the back of it - have you guessed which lovely it is yet? - Course you have its in the title of this post.
I have chosen to stitch my version of this on 40ct antique white linen 1/1 using the recommended thread colours apart from the writing which I stitched in an unknown overdye I had in my box, I think the colour is called zambuca and its a Six Strand Sweets thread.
You might wonder why I chose to stitch it this small, especially when its not hat huge anyway - well thats because quite a long time ago, mum bought me the smallest pair of scissors and I was always losing them, so I wanted something to keep them in and so it had to be as small as I could make it.
I followed the instructions putting it together, which was so easy as the instructions are very clear and easy to follow, and then I wanted something else on it as I always like to change things slightly (as you know) LOL! and I added 1/8" satin ribbon all around the edge - its the same ribbon as I used on the back on the scissor pocket. The wee pocket is made with some tilda fabric I bought when I was last over the North East its such a pretty duck egg blue with the smallest of polka dots on it, I know it looks quite big on my pictures but the whole piece together measures 2.75 inches long by about 1.75 inches wide.
I would also like to thank those of you that have given me this lovely award, that was so so kind of you, and really unnecessary I always feel such a fraud getting awards as there are far far nicer blogs out there in blogging land who post regularly and comment regularly - unlike me who is so errant its untrue and although I keep promising I'll be back out there visiting anc commenting more time just slips away from me with all my other things, and so I will nominate all of you who visit me here you are all so very very worthy of taking this award yourselves and Thankyou so much to the ladies who gave me the award - Love ya girls
You might wonder what I've been up too lately (and there again you might not LOL), well my sofas have arrived and I have been playing house, and trying to make it look like I want it too, I'm nearly there and I will have some pics for you at some point I promise - would you like a tour of my home? You might not, it might be a little boring but I'm excited as I love it when a plan starts coming together don't you?
Hope you are all having a great weekend - I'm off to Onion club tonight.
