A Secret Squirrel Project Revealed

Recently I signed up with Nita at Tiny Treasures Exchange, Too, for her scissor case swap.  015 Now that Lori in the US has received her parcel from me I can share it with you009 (2).                                               I worked on evenweave linen using two threads and in the middle of each nasturtium flower (which is what they are supposed to be) I sewed seed beads for a bit of bling.  The reverse shows Lori’s initials.
Having never taken part in an exchange before, I really wanted something that wasn’t too onerous for my first.  After all I didn’t want to ‘stuff it up’ in any way and let my partner down. Making a scissor pocket/case fit just perfectly.  I hope Lori likes the colours and thankyou to Nita for organising the exchange.
