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.
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.
