Finished a scissor fob today




I finally overcame a fear of using overdyed or variegated thread today. I made a one day project which was a freebie on Caron-net.com. It is a scissor fob designed by Carol Tinson. I used Watercolors "burnt toast" to stitch the fob and added some beads I had on hand. I am pleased with how it turned out and will definately use these types of threads again in the future. Thanks Diane (in Michigan - FTLOS) for all the encouragement to give this a go!
