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,
