LK Round B to Melissa.....


I can't believe I have another post...three days
in a row is a record for me. 

I heard from Melissa that she has received

LK "Bloom" freebie
25ct over one w/recommended fibers

This design is so simple but I just love it and decided to use it to adorn a scissor pocket. 
I love the bright colors of the pink, orange
and violet and thought they were perfect
for a springy piece. 

Unfortunately for Melissa, I decided to
try something new for me and "practiced"
on her exchange. 

(Amazing how something can be so clear in your
mind but not quite translate into reality.) 

Overall, though, I am happy with the finishing
and see a few more of these in my future.

Pink & orange...a yummy combo!

I found the fabric at Joann's and think it
lends itself quite nicely for the Lizzie Kate
design.  I can see many more LK designs
paired with this fabric.   

Of course, I had to include a pair of scissors with a
coordinating scissor fob.....I'm sure it is bad luck
to send an empty scissor pocket!   This was a fun
exchange and I am glad Melissa liked it.

Thanks for visiting and happy stitching...
I may just be back tomorrow!
