Glitzy Accessories Finally Finished!!

In the year 2000 I signed up for Carol Lake's Glitzy Accessories Cybercourse through ANG. I wanted to make something just for me and I liked her designs. I immediately finished the nametag, soon followed by the scissor fob. I then proceeded over time to stitch all the pieces and there they remained in a state of unfinishedness until this weekend. As part of my rotation system to reduce my WIPs/UFOs last week was "FINISHING" week. I was able to get the thread I needed and make all the twisted cord and tassels to complete the set.

Usually I work with a blunt tapestry needle for my cross stitch and needlepoint. This finishing stuff required a sharp sewing needle. I am seriously considering getting a tetanus shot!! No blood was spilled on the stitching.

Here is the nametag

Needlebook all tied shut

Scissor fob

Scissor case - laying tool case - frame weight.

Now on to the next rotation project with will be something from the specialty/beading category. I have selected a class from the Rocky Mountain Region 2010 Seminar called Victorian Fan -Romanian Point Lace and Beading. It has not been touched since class, so I hope I can remember what to do!

Have a nice day everyone!!!
