Some more finishes

Well, as I said a while back, this is the year for trying to get some of my UFO's finished and done, as well as, trying new things..

Below is a bookmark that my daughter, Lindsay made many years ago and I found it while cleaning things out - so I finished it with some purple fabric on the back (purple is Lindsay's favorite color). The other two items are beaded scissor fobs. The silver one is worked on a loom type device that I built out of card stock (instructions came with the pattern) Apparently there is a special loom that is available to do looped beading. The green scissor fob is just a stringing project with a tassel.Below is a over one stitch that I did many years ago and it is very small and I didn't like it in a frame and it was to small as a bell pull. I found this box among my stash of empty boxes and tins. It still isn't perfect but at least it has a home and is sitting on my buffet in time for the 4th of July weekend.The inside lining.Below is a beading class for EGA - it is a Group Correspondence Course. All I have left to do is the hanger part on top of his head and I have come to a screeching halt. Have to reread the directions when life is peaceful and quiet.
Below are two more "twisties", pin keeps and measuring tapes. The pinkeep is made with drapery fabric that has a random scrunchie stitched design, the pins have been colored with nail polish and the tape measure I found at the fabric store and glued buttons onto the sides (cutting the shanks on some of the buttons can be really difficult.)The "twistie" opened up (untwisted)This "twistie" set is a PIF that I had several month ago on my blog.
I do have another two PIF to send out and I do not know what exactly I will send or make!! We'll see how inspired I get!!

Well - off to get ready for the weekend - Happy 4th to you all ------ Roberta

You have accomplished so much! I think it's a very nifty idea that you finished Lindsay's bookmark. Your beaded and tassel scissor fobs are gorgeous!! Love your little nutcracker too. Have a very Happy 4th of July, and travel safe.

Wow Roberta! I don't know how you've managed to do all this but you have a lot to show in this post and everything so lovely.
I am very fond of my twistie although have never been able to bring myself to actually use it!
Well done on getting so much done. I love it all.
