My Snowman is stitched with his scarf and mittens, now all that's left is the missing variegated thread, beading and embellishments.
Snow Patch - 31 July 2009
I must admit, the mittens were a bit fiddly to do. Needless to say this wasn't my favourite part of the design. Though I still think he's looking pretty cute!
I'll let you in on a little secret - I have actually finished it all off today. So I'll take some photos tomorrow and show you the finished result.
A number of you commented on the scissors I had in my photos on a previous post. They are a Gingher brand from 2005 (actually released in 2004 and now retired) called Olivia. I purchased them direct from Shepherd's Bush along with their 2005 Fob kit. They are engraved with Shepherd's Bush on one side of the blade, and 2005 on the other. Each year for the last few years or so Shepherd's Bush have designed a fob to go with the latest release of Gingher's Designer Series scissors. They have them engraved, but you need to buy them directly from SB themselves. Since they're my favourite designers, I just think it's a great collectors item.
Don't forget, my finished photos of Snow Patch I'll post tomorrow. :)
