Needlework smalls exchange part 1!

I've heard that the Needlework Smalls exchange I stitched for Paula has arrived safely, so here it is!




It's two of the pieces from Strawberries Rule Accoutrements by Milady's Needle, but stitched with a pinky-purple thread for the berries instead of a red one. I thought Paula was more a purple person than a red one (and I was right apparently!) Both pieces have our initals on the back. The fabric is 40ct Light Examplar and the threads are GAST and WDW. The fob was easy but I was worried about the finishing for the scissor holder. But it worked better than I hoped, so all was well!

This is another one of those things I want to do again for myself one day!
