Stitch Stroll (24) and a little finishing

Todays stroll is one of the breast cancer pieces from Elegant Stitch....not sure what year. It is by Blackbird Designs and was made into a pincushion. I'm pretty sure the bag came with it. Updated: Piece is called Buttons and Blooms for the Cure.

As for some finishing, I completed the stitching on Let it Bee by The Drawn Thread. Such a sweet piece and, of course, means a lot since my favorite band was the Beatles. I think it can also be a reminder to let things "go" and not dwell on things that are disturbing and/or upsetting. Many comments, from both sides on FB, recently tend to get my Irish "ire" thinks this is not good for my blood pressure. This doesn't mean I don't care or aren't interested, it just means I don't want to allow myself to travel to the "dark" side. On to a brighter note............

I completed the finishing for the January challenge for the All About Smalls page on FB. The name is Sew Scissors by iStitch. I decided to go with a "less is more" finish and didn't put cording around the piece. I plan to use this as a fob for my dressmaker shears. It is stitched over one on 58 count linen with threads I had in my stash. I had some scraps of the backing fabric and, since I didn't need much, it worked perfectly.

Thanks for stopping by and your "twisted threads" of friendship!


  1. Your scissor fob turned out lovely, Stasi. Congratulations on getting Let it Bee finished! The pincushion for today's stroll looks very nice.

  2. Oh Stasi! Love both your finishes. That fob turned out so nicely. Of course, you know I love the bee. Congrats!

  3. What timing Stasi. I just finished emailing and then praying for my dear friend who is right now fighting for her life because of nasty breast cancer. That is a beautiful piece. Sew Scissors is just so precious! I adore tiny stitches!!
