Anita's new stitching finishes and new scissors, Little House Needleworks Sept and Oct Sampler Kit, and new beading accessories

I made the biscornu beaded scissor fob by using the new beading accessories that I have listed on the web site. It is very easy to make. I will have a beading tutorial either in August or September to show you how to make it. The beading tips are great, you don't need to have a crimping tool or crimping beads and they help to begin and ended the threads.The beading flower caps just added a lot to the overall designs.

The second round pincushion is a very easy finishing and the pincushion turned out very pretty.

The third finish is a biscornu using a Nordic Needle Hardanger designs, I modified the chart a little and did not do any cut work. The threads I used was ThreadworX botanic garden and matching mill hill beads.

I have just added some more updown girl scissors, these are sold as a set of 3 scissors. Little House needlework Sept/Oct Sampler Kit will be mailed out around August 14. And I have added the Matt Resin Hearts as well as other beading accessories.
