L*KE & RAK

First off, I received word my Lizzie Kate Exchange arrived with Melissa. I am so proud of this exchange. Do you know how you picture something to make, it all looks so perfect? I was so pleased that these pieces came out exactly like I pictured. I made a scissor fob and a floss tag. The scissors pictured didn't go with, as this was a no-extras exchange.

Design ~ June Flip-it
Designer ~ Lizzie* Kate
Fabric ~ 28 count Jobelan, tea-dyed
Fiber ~ DMC

Here is the front:



Here is the back:
I was feeling a tiny bit goofy when I free-hand-stitched the personalization. I really hope Melissa liked it!

In today's mail I found this little treasure from Sophia at Scotland for the Senses. A tiny RAK thank-you gift! Lots of you know how much I like those Hielan' coos! This will be a fun project to make.

Thank you, Sophia!

Thank you for visiting my blog today!
