Scissor Keeper & Blackwork

I have quite a few pairs of little embroidery scissors - in fact I have a pair in with each project I am working on at any particular time! So I like to have lots of different little "scissor keepers". This one was made by me a little while ago and it has my name and a charm attached to the end of a spool of cotton and some assorted beads! This is resting on my beautiful needle case made for me by Sylvia from a Lynette Anderson design.

And I'm really pleased to hear that finally Iza from Poland has received my blackwork pincushion which I sent to her over a month ago! It's obviously not just Australia Post who have the monopoly on delays! This was a fun blackwork design to stitch - it must have been because I have now made it twice!!


  1. I like your scissor keeper with your name and the needle case is so sweet.

    I am happy to hear that your pin cushion arrived in its new home.

  2. Your blackwork biscornu is beautiful. The scissor keeper is such a good idea.

  3. A beautiful blackwork biscornu, it must be a great relief that it finally arrived safely.

    Cust scissor fob, i took have a pair of scissors with each project, makes changing from one project ot another so much easier.

    Happy stitching & crafting!

  4. Thank you so much for your lovely vsit to my blog. That biscornu is just so beautiful- and those scissor fobs are toooo cute!! :)

  5. Your blackwork biscornu is just beautiful. I love it.
