Smalls SAL - September

Hi Everyone,
Today I´m joining Heather at the Stitching Lotus for this month´s Smalls SAL check-in.  Nothing that I have been working on this month has met with my approval for some reason or another so I´m showing here a piece of summer stitching done during my blogging break.  One day I unenthusiastically explored the Dreaded UFO Drawer and decided to completely finish an abandoned scissor fob project.



The design is a well known one, the Rhodes Butterfly by The Sweetheart Tree.  I made the biscornu years ago and liked it so much that I kept it for myself  (seen here) and forgot about the gift it was intended to be but then I lost interest in finishing the matching scissor fob because although I think they are so very decorative, I don´t find them practical.



I completed the stitching but not without some difficulty and certainly not as the design indicates since I couldn´t find the original pattern and had to base the remaining  stitching on what had already been started.



However, I´m pleased to have got this little UFO out of the drawer and finished although I may change the tassel and cording as I don´t particularly like the dark green thread chosen by yours faithfully, sigh.

Until next time,
Sheryl

  3. Very pretty! I agree about the scissor fob, mostly they get in the way. But I will put one on my good scissors when I go to a retreat so I can easily keep mine on my table.

  8. It's very pretty Sheryl. I like the cord and tassel and would be more inclined to change the ribbon on the biscornu to match. xx

  10. I do love pink and green and Sweetheart Tree pieces are beautiful. You have done lovely work as always! There is a lot of fussy stitching on Sweetheart Tree pieces but they are gorgeous when done. I do so enjoy seeing your pieces. You are always doing something creative and beautiful.

  19. How pretty those rhodes butterflies are, Sheryl! I can imagine they were a bit tricky to stitch... I have only done Rhodes hearts--which I loved. Should learn to do the butterflies, too :)

    A lovely finish! Hope you are enjoying some wonderful October weather...

  20. This is so pretty. I guessed it was a Sweetheart Tree even before I scrolled down to see. I think it is perfect as a small ornie if you don't want it attached to your scissors.
