I have a friend in Arizona who is very dear to me. I went to visit her and her DH (while they lived in TX) last year for a stitching retreat and fell in love with both of them. I mean, how can you not? They are such amazing people! I got her name in a Christmas Pal Exchange in our stitching group I was super excited. She likes Dragonflies so since I had been itching to stitch Elizabeth’s Designs ‘Dragonfly’ I decided to make her a biscornu and a scissor case (I wanted to try out that finishing technique) to match. I also made a tiny little fob to go with it and included some tiny scissors.
I am so happy that she got her gift and that she liked it. I sure had a lot of fun stitching it and doing the finishing. I decided to add some dragonflies to it and make it a little more fun. I also changed the thread colors since Tracy loves purple and I wanted the flowers to be purple.
Her DH Ron also got a gift from me. The black and red biscornu that I posted about some time ago was for him 🙂 He loved his biscornu. I am so happy since I had never made a biscornu for a guy before!
Update: Anita asked me what threads I used.
The blue/purple variegated thread used for the flowers was a gift from Aniza and she dyed it herself and gave it to me along with the pattern. The thread that I used for the leaves is Needle Necessities #169.
