A litte of this and that for a Sampler Sunday

Hope you are enjoying this 3 day weekend. I've been relaxing with a little knitting and a little stitching and even a little sewing - now that's what I call a great weekend! I have a couple of little pieces to share today. This little LOVE sampler is a Bent Creek design and it was included in the project Kris's Stitches, From the Heart, Chart One. It finished a tiny 2 3/4 inches square. I found the frame on sale at Michael's. It measures about 6". I framed this one myself and its not too bad a job.



And these little scissors fobs were my Christmas gifts to my quilty friends. I found the scissors at Anita's Little Stitches. The chart for the stitching is something I copied from another cross stitching friend some time ago. I forgot to write down who's design it is but I strikes me as a Lizzie*Kate or Bent Creek.



I finished these with a beaded edge and filled them with crushed walnut shells. The mother of pearl button accent was my personal touch. I love mother of pearl buttons! Now the only thing I didn't do was make one for me - oh well I'll put it on my list of things to do. It is a very long list - LOL!

Hope you have tomorrow off too! Happy stitching-

  7. Wonderful scissor fobs gifts. Adorable little bitty sampler. Why do we always make for others but don't take time to make for ourselves?
