Froggy and finishes

Here is a pic of the floral frog i picked up this weekend at an antique shop. I love these little crystal frogs. I have my scissors in this one (my only one as of now, but will be looking for more to start a collection). This is not all my scissors by the way, there are at least 4 or 5 more pair not shown.

I did a bit of finishing this past week and can only show a couple pics right now. When the others arrive i can show others. I can show the scissor fob i sent to Sabine Rose for the Tiny Treasures exchange i was in. I grabbed her pics off the TT blog, as mine didn't come out good at all. I stitched a portion of a freebie from Debbie Draper Designs and then her first initial with her name down the side of the letter on the opposite side of fob.


I also pulled out a couple older pieces i stitched a couple years back for Valentine's Day and "finished" them this week. One is from the Silver Needle's Secret Needle Night kits (don't remember then name) and i finished it into a flat-fold, my first go at this finish. I think it turned out pretty good, it just doesn't fold completely flat. oh well. The other is Hugs N Kisses (don't remember who by) and finished it into a No Sew Cube.


I do have a couple other Valentine's Day pieces to "finish", maybe today i will work on them. Not much else really going on around here, it's been chilly again here after wonderful 70-80 degree weather. But that's ok, we don't want the Heat coming too soon here, will make for a very long hot summer in AZ.

It was YOU!! I could not remember who told me about the frog! lol... I'm going to put your name on my blog now:) So sorry...the mind is going! Hey, I may do the felt or something soft too. I thought getting the deeper one, I wouldn't need to. I almost bought the same style you have...it holds more:)
