"Mama Bird" by Brightneedle, published in the April 2002 issue of Just Cross Stitch. I thought it was the perfect quick selfish stitching project to do in the middle of all the exchange stitching that's been taking place ;) And it's proceeding quickly considering I started it yesterday afternoon! It would actually be finished if I hadn't decided I wanted to try making a scissor sheath, which lead to a ring tag...which could possibly lead to a scissor fob. The stitchy version of "If You Give a Mouse a Cookie", so to speak lol!!!

I decided to try making a scissor sheath since I have a really large collection of scissors, and most of them don't have the leather sheaths to protect the tips. This was a pretty quick and easy little project, although I think I would make any future sheaths an inch or so longer~~I think this one is just a tad too short. And I may have to fiddle with the assembly too ;)
And...I finally found the magazine with the 3 red mini-samplers! The Aug/Sept 1999 issue of The Needleworker......I hope you have this in your stash because it's an oldie and definately a goodie! I had it set aside because there is a very cute piece in it called "Fall Samplings" by the The Goode Huswife that I stitched for a dear friend last year and plan to re-stitch for myself (someday!)
Wishing you a happy stitchy day!!!
