A Busy Day

After a long day taking care of my feisty one year old granddaughter, I am now able to relax and do a bit of blogging and may be a bit of stitching since she is out of the house for the evening. I don't know where there little ones get the energy! Maybe one day I will ask Asia where she gets all this energy from and would she kindly show her grandmother where she can get some too, lol!

I finished a scissors fob a couple of weeks ago but only now get to show it off. This one is a freebie from The Drawn Thread called 'Pearls and Rosebuds'. I found this one to be very delicate to stitch with its smyrna and eyelet stitches using one strand of thread. Actually, this was the first time I have ever attempted to stitch these type of stitches so they may not be done perfectly. I am always ready to try something new to me so they are many other stitches that I am yet to encounter and try.

Design: Pearls and Rosebuds
Designer: The Drawn Thread
Fabric: Natural Light Jobelean
Threads: DMC
Trims: Silk Ribbon, Pearl seed beads, Two 6mm pearls
Finished as: A Scissors Fob

I have been trying to "dress up" my photos but haven't found the ideal editor to do them in yet. If anyone can help me to find one that works well please let me know. It would be much appreciated. So I'm off now to finish up some stitching since the house is all mine now, at least for the moment, lol.

Thank you for stopping by!
