A Birthday Finish !

This is the Scissor Keep I made for my Aunt Judy for her Birthday. The linen and threads I finished. All the other things like, buttons, lace and backing fabric was in my grandmother's sewing basket that I received when she passed on.

The scissors I purchased to put them in the pocket. I stitched my grandma's initials and the date she was born. Aunt Gloria... Yours is in the making and it is different. I am making each Aunt one.. Aunt Debbie's Birthday is in March.. I will have a break before I have to have hers finished. Mom will get one for Christmas.. I couldn't find the right pattern for her. I just did this week. So all the Aunts that read this know now.... SURPRISE !!! LOL I figured Aunt Judy couldn't keep it a secret.. I did forget to show one of my Halloween Ornaments:



Wicked Freebie. It was an easy finish. That is my Cricket Collection Tree it is hanging on. My 1 Ornament... that is sad.... He is already in the tub with the other Halloween decorations.. Till Next Year for them.... SAD Thank everyone for the nice comments on my stitching! I appreciate them all! I get inspiration looking at your blogs!!! Keep it up!

Till Later..... Happy Day To Everyone!
