Anita's Stitching

A one over one scissor fob for ME

I am still trying to beat the clock to squeeze in more Valentine theme stitching. I still have 2 small heart patterns that I have picked to stitch. I just finished a french design and the designer is Atalie. I used Vicki Clayton silk "wine" and stitched it one over one. I have heard so many great things about Vicki C silk and decided to give it a try. I love it. At the back of the fob, I used Sajou Alphabet from the freebie site. I always like to use Perle cotton #3, or #5 for my cording.
I added some Mill Hill petite gold beads to front and back as well.

Wow, that is incredibly beautiful Anita. I love the bright colour. I've just ordered a couple of VC silks as subs for Waterlilies and Thread Gatherer Silk n Colors. They're getting a little too expensive for my pocket now!
