A Little Finish

Our on-line group's birthday gifts this year include embroidery scissors and a scissor fob.  My partner's birthday was early March.  I very much enjoyed making this cross-stitched scissor fob.  Many years have gone by since I did some cross stitch.  I have a couple of very large WIP's that I might get back to one day.


My time in the sewing room over the last few days has been spent making X blocks for Goodnight Irene.  It's time to lay out the 16-patch blocks with these X's and start sewing them into rows.


The Little Chicken Feather stitcheries are progressing well - the smaller stitcheries are being done at lunchtime at work and the larger ones while I watch tv at night.  Two rows and another block are now finished and I'm so happy with these colours/fabrics from my stash.  The smaller stitcheries are on a white-on-white "Miss Kate" fabric from Bonnie and Camille and the larger stitcheries are on an off-white linen fabric.



Paula and I went to see "The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel" on the weekend - I loved it just as much the second time.
