After three starts on a scissor pocket for the Monthly Finishing Challenge, I completely changed my mind and stitched the above! The chart is the Quaker Alphabet from the JCS 2006 Ornament magazine. I now need to find some finishing fabric to co-ordinate with the fabric and floss. The linen is, I think, 32ct raw linen but I am not sure as it came with an exchange gift. The floss is DMC 815. I enjoy stitching one over one as it produces such a delicate look to a piece. There is also a scissor fob pattern to match so I am going to stitch this too.
After posting that I had been awarded the Kreativ Blogger Award by Yuko and Deb, I have since been awarded it again - twice; firstly by Margaret S and secondly by Tammie - thank you so much. I am so pleased that anyone bothers to read my blog and they enjoy it so much that they leave me an award! Tammie has also chosen me to be a recipient of a RAK and is stitching me a gift. How sweet of her - thank you Tammie.
By the way, have you seen the lovely floss tags that Deb has for sale on her stash sale (here)?They are absolutely gorgeous especially the French Script ones.
Tonight Hannah Beeby might make an appearance. I have missed her and she does deserve at least a few stitches.
