Pincushion and Scissor Keeper

This is a pincushion and scissor fob which I have recently finished off.   It is my adaptation of a Nancy Halvorsen inspired design.   I love the pumpkin pincushions - so couldn't resist making it into something I would love to use!     

The back of the scissor keeper and inside are yet another pair of cute embroidery scissors!

This needlecase from a couple of weeks ago completes the set - although I love the fabrics and have some more - so anything else in the "stitchy" line could eventuate!

A belated birthday weekend away in Berry was had this past weekend - David organised a cute little house in Berry for the weekend and Bruce and Sylvia  joined us from Canberra!   We had a lovely weekend!   Way too much food was consumed - but we enjoyed it all!

Sylvia and I managed to fit in a little bit of stitching time!

Bruce (on the left) has one of those great cameras which you can set up to take a photo - so here we all are on the steps of the cottage - Bruce, me, David, Sylvia!!

And here I am trying to finish off one of my Leanne Beasley Vignette blocks - so much stitching in these blocks - but very enjoyable stitching!


  1. Thanks for such a wonderful weekend, Fiona and David. Your stitching bits and pieces look great.

  2. Lovely work Fiona -
