DD #1 Has Been Busy!

DMC threads

DD#1 did a beautiful job on this Peppermint Latte ornie!  Her co-workers were offering to pay her to stitch one for them :) This was just her second attempt at a beaded finishing and it looks great! 

So, (in the spirit of giving her extra practice :) I asked her to finish a scissor fob for me.  Do you remember this one below?

Linen and threads from the kit


Here it is!  I admit that I was wonderng how yellow beads and a purple ribbon would look.  But her choices were just right and I am so tickled.  Thanks, Les! 

Now send me a photo of your Frosty Blue snowman finish and I'll share it too!
