It was supposed to be a scissor fob but......

it didn't work out. After three frustrating attempts my scissor fob became a tiny little pinkeep. I had placed lime beads around it and then I tried red seed beads and still it looked not quite right. I even tried to do beads just in the corners-but to no avail.I think maybe my problem was that I had done it on 25 ct. lugana because it was stitched over one. I just had a hard time matching up those edges. I still like the way it turned out and I feel somewhat relieved that it is not hanging over my head. I have a little heart stitched on the back, but did not get a good picture of it to show.

Today, I received a little surprise, Margaret from Stitch or No Stitch had sent me a pattern but unbeknown to me, she also sent me this sweet little dishtowel. It's special because it is the first stitched gift anyone has ever given me. Thanks again Margaret!
