Alyssum Scissor Pocket

A picture of the inside and the outside.

I just heard that the Make a Wish I made for Gaby has arrived. Gaby asked for a scissor pocket, and I stitched this one by The Cat's Whiskers Design Studio. I used 32ct linen and stitched it with Dragon Floss, which has subtle changes of pink and lilac.

I had another couple of finishes yesterday, so stay tuned for more pics, but I've been out all day today, and the light is not good enough now. I'm really enjoying being in this finishing mood.

A picture of the scissor pocket closed. As I used a full skein of thread, I was unable to make a cord for the fastening, so used this pretty ribbon instead.

I'm glad that Gaby like it.
