Scissor case and fob

This came as a kit (scissors not included) with ribbon, and beads. I have not done any beading like this and I enjoyed doing this. It was fairly simple and came out very nice. Now I won't lose my scissors at the next retreat or stitch-in.

Last ornament for this year

This is my last ornament for this year. This one is for my daughter and I wanted to make it into a flat-fold but, I was in a hurry and didnt' read the instrustions so it turned out to be a door hanger. After thinking about it I'm glad I did it this way because she has more door knobs in her house then places to set things. This is from the Just Cross Stitch ornament issue this year.

Christmas Ornament for me

I found a really nice ornament in this year's Just Cross Stitch Christmas ornament issue. I decided to do it for me, there wasn't a lot of stitching envolved but, the finishing was more difficult then I wanted to do for a give away. It's actually a little box pillow and there is a stitched back to it. I have posted a picture down below this of the back. It really turned out cute but, the next time I will use ribbon for the bow on top.

Witch Parking by Glendon Place

I am a member of The Stitchers Village and over the Halloween weekend Cheryl Granda was visiting and we could chat on line with her. She designed this free design and I loved it so I put it together as a flat fold. You can see in the next picture that this was the first time I ever did this. I stitched this on a opalecent and it really came out cute.

My First Attempt

This is my first attempt at a stand up. I used some directions on a couple of web sites. I am really very happy with the way this came out.
