Another small finish


I think I'm on a roll, at least with smaller pieces and having finishes. This is the new Shepherd's Bush 2009 Scissor Fob. I think the ribbon took longer than the rest of the finishing. Please, can someone tell them to go back to the cording around the outside? Makes a much more useable scissor fob. I did enjoy the stitching of this one. The fabric color is just mouth watering. It's called Seafoam green but it looks more aqua than green.

I used a pair of antique scissors that I got on eBay just for display purposes. I hope to be able to find a pair of "Roberta" Ginghers to go with this fob eventually.

Next up? Not sure, but I'm leaning towards SB's Winter Sampler shop exclusive. It came with an absolutely adorable mat.

Thanks for again stopping by, and for all the lovely comments you leave. Stitch on, and keep warm.

Another beauty! I love that ribbon finishing but the one time I tried it I made a total hash of it. Practice I guess...
Yours looks great!

Love the fob! I'm still not sure about the ribbon either but it certainly looks good so you must be doing something right Debs. :)

You've done a lovely job with the ribbon, but I agree with you - I don't think a silk ribbon is very practical for a scissor fob.

Those scissors are lovely!

Wow, it's gorgeous! Your ribbon work looks terrific even if it takes more time to do. I'm sure going to have to place an order with SB some day to get this and a few other bits 'n pieces. You weren't tempted to get the scissors too? I think I'm going to cave in and get the engraved Gingher's. I've got no will power when it comes to needlework and SB! :)
