Scissor Keeper Exchange

I participated in a Scissor Keeper exchange with a small group of stitchers and here is what I stitched for BeckySC:

Designer: The Cat's Whiskers
Fabric: 36ct Edinborough Linen, Flax
Threads: Threadworx Overdyed Pearl 12 "Very Berry"
Stitched for: BeckySC

What a perfect design for this exchange! The word Scissors is stitched in 4 languages: 

Ciseaux = French
Forbici = Italian
Scissors = English
Tijeras = Spanish

I was able to stitch a portion of the design and mount it on a small wooden box.  I love how this turned!

I will be heading out at about 7:30AM (just 6 hrs from now…I need to get to bed!) to begin my 1600-mile trip to New York, NJ, MA. Little Lily (6# Yorkie) will be the perfect road companion, quiet and sweet. I will be attending a HS graduation party in Massachusetts, which will give me the opportunity to see many of my relatives, I will get the chance to see a dear friend in NJ, and I will help my son move into his Manhattan apartment. I'm not sure when I will be returning home, probably at the end of June so this will be my last post for a while.

Thanks for stopping by.  Come on back in July. :)

Until next time...

Like that scissors box!
I hope your son's Manhattan apartment is nothing like my first Manhattan apartment--5th floor walkup! Good luck.

What a beautiful exchange you stitched. I have this chart and plan to stitch it up one day, just have to get brave enough to use my sewing machine.

What a cute box Marie - Becky is one lucky recipient for sure. Your finished quilt turned out gorgeous - I sent the link to a friend of mine who is making that same pattern but in different colors. Congrats on your finishes and hope you a great trip!
