A finish or two!

Hi all
Meant to post last weekend and time got away from me, but now I have more to share, so here goes!
First up, I finished one of my wip's Drawn Thread Little Acorn Learning Band Sampler
Fabric: 32ct cream Belfast, Threads: Needlepoint Inc silks

Next up I got some finishing done on a couple of items, first is my Just Nan - In the tin Hop needlebook scissor fob

Next up is the Cat's Whiskers Pink ribbon Scissor Keeper. This was pretty fiddly to finish but I love the results! The lining fabric I used is white with little pink ribbon symbols on it.
Here's an ornament I finished for an exchange. It's kind of my own creation but I took some of the elements from other ornaments in one of the JCS ornament issues. This was the first time I made my own tassel too! I can't show the back yet but you'll just have to believe me that it's stitched too, lol!

Stitched on 32ct antique white belfast, with DMC, kreinik #4 braid & mill hill beads.

And hot off the needle is my latest finish. I got this one finished last night, it's Just Nan Over The Top - Sizzle.

Stitched as charted on 28ct Meadow mist cashel with recommended DMC.

Thanks for looking, I'm hoping for some wip pic updates next time!

Happy Stitching
