This is Topiary Ornament, 2000, by Hillside Samplings. I made it into a scissor fob, because I needed a heavy fob to balance these scissors. It is filled with the poly pellets. The top charm, a glass star is by Mill Hill and the bow is from Threadgatherer, Gilded Lavender. I think it turned out well, but I didn't enjoy working on this particular linen. For some reason, the fabric seemed to reflect the light, and that made it difficult to see just where the stitches went.
I have several other things in the works right now, which I can't talk about or show you, as its a gift for a friend. As soon as she receives the gift, I'll post a picture here. Next project will probably be the Shepherd's Bush 2007 Fob kit, or I might act responsible and finish Jingle. Or maybe I should find something new--learn a new skill. Oh wait. That will come when I finish off that gift--its lined in regular fabric, and not linen. And I have a few changes I want to make to the inside of it.
Thats all for now. Thank you all for your kind comments and for visiting. Until the next time. Happy Stitching.
