Oh WOW just look at this...



Here you can see this gorgeous scissor case that Becky has made as a gift for me :-))) I can't tell you how beautiful this is in real life and as for Becky's stitching, I can tell you it is ABSOLUTELY perfect. Every stitch is identical and honestly it is so neat you would think it had been printed !! There are many speciality stitches in this piece and some tiny pearl beads it really must have taken her hours and hours to do and I appreciate it so, so much :-)))

If you look below you can see how she has made the closure with the section of cutwork for the ribbon to be threaded through and the pretty heart crystal that the ribbon ties around when it is shut. I love heart shapes and it is a perfect match for the Rhodes Hearts that Becky has stitched on this. It is finished so neatly, (contrary to what Becky's own opinion is) and prettily. The size in real life is about the same as the top picture. I guess you all know by now how much I love dainty things :)




The colours are so fresh and spring-like and the lining fabric Becky has chosen is another perfect match, wait... it does not end here...see this next picture below? I was also sent these really pretty pink scissors along with their leather case that sit inside the case Becky made. I think you will all agree with me that this certainly lives up to its name of 'Simply Elegant Scissor Case'.




I thanked Becky yesterday when this arrived to me and it is so difficult to actually say in words just how touched I am by her kindness and how I feel very honoured to now own such a beautiful piece of Becky's needlework to display amongst my most treasured items. Infact I feel I am actually walking around in a bit of a daze lately as I am so stunned at the kindness that has been showered on me and I can honestly say I have got a nice warm feeling of happiness just now, so much so, I think I must be glowing... ;-))

Once again I will tell you Dear Becky that I LOVE IT and know it came from the heart and I thank-YOU from the bottom of mine xx

P.S. I forgot to picture the back...sorry!

Once more cheers for stopping by to visit my blog :-))

You're right Helen the Long Dog 18th Century Sampler employs quite intense stitching, going really slow but still loving it!
