They've all been received

So now I can show you what was in the PIF packages :)

I know, how un-original...floss tags. Are you tired of them?

Quaker time by
Gencat
fabric: 32ct lambswool linen
fiber: DMC 115

And a close up of the scissors with their tags.
I love this grosgrain ribbon.
The letters remind me of old fashioned typeface.
I sewed vintage metal buttons from my stash to hold the ends together.
(The pictures should be clickable for a closer view.)

Thanks for stopping by my neck of the woods :)
The weekend is so close, I can almost taste it!

And I love mine, very much! The stitching couldn't have been more perfect! It's the first handmade floss tag I've ever owned. The tag on the scissors was a nice, nice touch. Thank you again Staci! :)

They're fabulous! I love the way you did the scissor fobs - the ribbons are wonderful!

Annie said...

Your finishing is so perfect. I think it's so hard to do a shape that isn't square. You've really mastered it. And the scissors fobs are a really clever idea.

Ruth Rachel Vendsel said...

So pretty, Staci! The ribbon is really unique and cool looking. I am sure everyone is in love with your gift.

Who could ever get bored with looking at your tags? They're all absolutely incredible, and the latest Quaker bunch is no exception ... just beautiful :D

Hi Staci,

I've been enjoying my floss tag
so much since it arrived last
week. My favourite colour is
red, and this finish is wonderful.
So much thought and imagination
went into this project, and I
really appreciate your thoughtful-
ness.

I absolutely love that pear finish
that you did for Vonna too! Trust
you to come up with such a neat
ornament for the exchange. Is the
pear stitched onto the backing
material (felt?).

You mentioned improving your sewing
skills. Are you planning to take
a class or something?? When you
sew your finished pieces do you
hand sew or use a machine...or
perhaps both???

Thank you again for the wonderful
gift. I'm beaming with delight
here....really....you can read by
the glow! :)

Cheers!

Wow, as you can see, everyone is impressed with our PIF's. Cute idea and done so perfect. I am jealous...I did stitch this pattern in black to make one but not sure I can do the finishing like you...that is the difficult part for me. ha!!! Very generous of you and your time to share. pj

Hazel said...

Carolyn said...

As always, I sit in amazement at the beautiful work you've done. You are just so clever. Where on earth did you find that awesome ribbon? It is definitely cool beans!

The ornament you did for Vonna is awesome! I'll take one just like that, please. LOL

Talk to you soon!

Hugs,
Carolyn :)

Kathy said...
