Hi, Olivia! Welcome home!

Today, the Gingher 4" embroidery scissors in the Olivia pattern arrived. Welcome home, Olivia! LOL! I'm too lazy to take a picture right now but I promise to post a picture of my scissor, I mean...scissor collection soon.

The real reason I'm posting right now is because I just finished my very first scissor fob. It is "No Frogging Allowed" by Stitchy Kitty. I even made the cording. It's less than perfect (as are 99.8% of my finishes) but I love it!

Here is the front:
And here is the back:

Ironically, I had to frog a few stitches on the back of the fob. LOL!

Thanks for looking! I'm off to see if I can get some stitches in on a WIP before my eyes get too heavy. Bye for now! :-)

Your fob is very cute and I chuckled when you said you actually had to frog on the back LOL!

Enjoy those new scissors, I think collecting stitching accessories is part of being a stitcher...
