Scissor Fobs & Pincushions

This has to be one of my favourite scissor fobs and scissor keepers! I was lucky enough to receive this very special gift in an exchange from Liz who lives in The Netherlands. The colours are gorgeous and I love that she has put our initials and our countries onto the little scissor fob. This is really very special!

I love anything needlework related, so I have lots of pincushions and needle rolls too! This simple cross stitched needle roll gets a fair bit of use on my sewing table!

This pincushion is canvas work with ribbon which I made a long time ago but which sits in my little basket on my sewing desk. I love the muted colours and this is another favourite! I have lots of favourites!

And one of the many little needlework baskets or boxes which I keep some of my bits and pieces in. This is freehand embroidery which I completed a while ago, but again I love the use of the ribbons to segment the flowers - and all on top of a very cheap $1- basket! I think it's worth more now with the embroidery on top !


  1. Everything is just beautiful, but the gift from Liz and the pincushion with the ribbon - Wow!

  2. Love the scissor pocket you received - do you know what the design is?
