Some finishing


I thought I would do a little finishing this weekend and decided that I would finish this pretty design by Danybrod  which she designed in 2008. The design is called 'Ancien filet crochet'

I made it into a scissor keeper/thread holder, and I also made a scissor fob.


I edged it all with an ivory beaded trim and used a Kelmscott Designs thread ring.

This is the back of the scissor holder/thread keeper, I used a moda fabric and some 1/8" ribbon for the holder, and its the most perfect size for a pair of the Kelmscott 'Little gems' scissors.

The fob I trimmed with the same trim as the scissor holder, I also used the same ribbon. I finished it of with a MoP heart button so that it matched the MoP thread ring of the thread holder part.

Its all stitched it all on 32ct linen - colour unknown and I used silk thread - Belle Soie 'Vanilla Pudding'. I wanted it to have that soft vintage cameo look to it all and I am really pleased with how its turned out.

I do like Danys designs and have recently treated myself to a couple of them, I am looking forward to starting another soon.

I hope that you are all having a good weekend? The weather here yesterday was really nice - the sun was shining and it was very warm, but today we have had lots of thunder and now its raining quite heavily, but it still feels warm, I did a bit of work in my garden again yesterday for a while, and I am getting excited about my plants blooming in the next month or so, I really think its going to be quite pretty this year.

Su, what a beautiful finish. It is so pretty. I love the beaded trim. Great job you did.

I love a good thunder storm. Where I live there are very rare, we might get thunder and lightning about once a year. It is suppose to be sunny and warm here today. I hope to get some stitching done but might head to the pool instead.
Take Care and enjoy your day!

What a lovely little matching pair, Su, exquisitely stitched and finished in your clever imaginative way. I love the rich clotted creamy coloured silk against the pale blue linen. It really looks like lace.

This weather is amazing for the gardens! After weeks of being way behind this rain and sun has given them a huge boost. I can just imagine how lovely yours is looking :>)
