An exchange found it’s way to Egypt!

I heard from Karina (via Nita – thank you) that 1) she’s received the scissor pocket I sent and 2) she’s having computer problems. The computer thing seems to be going around – I think I’ll feed mine some extra Vitamin C when I’m done here. If I get done here – is anyone else having trouble posting? FYI – this sat for an hour waiting to “contact Blogger”.

So here are some pictures of the pocket I sent her – the design is my own blackwork, inspired by the background fabric. Even thought the portion that really inspired it – longish heart-shaped leaves – isn’t showing.

my own design: Blackwork Heart Bouquet
28-count black Monaco
3 shades of pink DMC

(this is a “glue-drying” pic – note the pins)
Here’s a close-up of the lace trim – from Kristi’s tutorial. Her pictures are much better.


Have I mentioned recently how great it is to be part of an online community? Thanks to everyone who shares new techniques, patterns, finishes – and shares instructions. I think I told you all, I took careful notes and lots of pictures while I was finishing this. So the favor will be returned shortly! 🙂
