First PIF gift.

I finished the first PIF gift. This is for Ásdís :o)

This is also my first finish for 2008 so it is a double happy dance! I had a lot of fun stitching this one and it turned out pretty cool I think. I have been wanting to do this scissor fob for a while so it seemed to be a good one to make for Ásdís. And I decided to make the ribbon purple since Ásdís’s favorite color is purple.

PIF - for Ásds

Pattern: The Spring Keeper by The Drawn Thread (freebie found here (.pdf file))
Threads: DMC
Fabric: some 32ct linen from my stash
Mill Hill beads and purple ribbon. The fob was filled with rice.

Ásdís, you can expect this one in your mailbox next week sometime. I hope you like it!

My designs.

I can now offer my two patterns for sale. Both patterns got featured in The Gift Of Stitching Magazine.
The cost is $5 pr. pattern and I accept PayPal or you can mail the money to me. Once payment is completed, I will e-mail you the PM file and a file with instructions. You need Pattern Maker Viewer to be able to view and print the patterns. Pattern Maker Viewer is free for download here. I am hoping that I will also be able to make .pdf files but that hasn’t been figured out as of yet. I will let inform you once that is possible.
You can contact me by e-mail: litlaskvis at vortex .is (remove spaces) and I will contact you with PayPal info or send you my address if you wish to mail the money to me.
