Scissor Keeper Exchange

Hi everyone, finally finished work at the temp job and hoping to get some order back in my life, at least for a week!!! We leave on vacation next Thursday!!! I know, my life is just way too busy, it is amazing I get anything done at all!!

I participated in a scissor exchange which was fun.

Below is a scissor bag that I sent to my exchange partner Angela.

This was a kit that I purchased when I was in England a few years ago and I thought it was cute and a bit different. Obviously, I didn't get it stitched (is this a surprise!!) but thought it would be fun to stitch for the exchange. It is a bit different than most scissor keepers but I liked the idea of a bag. The design was really pretty and the colors were lovely. I think if I do this again for me, I will change some of the tones to be a bit deeper. I am not really a pastel type of gal even though I like the look.
Below is the exchange piece I received from Kathy who was my exchange partner. Isn't this adorable, I love the colors.
I also love the little pink bag and the Mary Engelbreit card - I love Mary Engelbreit things. Thanks for stopping by -- will try to get a quick post off before I go to Italy and France.
