Scissors keeper progress


The front is finished, I really enjoyed this, it’s quite textured. I designed my own back.

I now need to find time to make the scissor keeper, I’m thinking about adding a ribbon, to truly keep both together, after all I really need to make sure my special gold work scissors stay for gold work.


Felt Christmas decorations


This year we decided on a pre lit pop up tree. I added some extra ribbon (like the more expensive version) but it still lacked some thing. I have been looking at the twelve days of Christmas felt decorations by Larissa Holland on Etsy & brought the pack of the first 3 ( this years offerings)

Partridge & pear (tree) are finished.

Unicorn Dreams ( Zendoole stitch) 1


I have a new project to practice my embroidery stitches on. I’ve chosen pink, mauve & yellow to work in.  If it works out well I might make it into a cushion for our granddaughter ( hence the pink)

Here’s my progress 

I’m attempting to practice covering up all those black lines & getting smooth edges. 

It’s quite a fun design, isn’t it.
