SAL news

I stayed up until 1:30 a.m. [earlier this morning] trying to get the set finished. After pinning the cord in place, I quit for the day! Needed some sleep. Tonight, I plan to sew the cord on after the evening meal.

This is the first time I've used Dinky Dyes threads. This project was stitched with Red Dust (silk) & Nullabor (cotton) 'Hand dyed Australian threads'.

The scissor pocket and needlebook are all done. ta da! I used the lighter color silk for the cord on the scissor pocket. Other than changing the cord color, I followed the finishing directions on the scissor pocket provided on the pattern.

This is the inside of the needlebook & the scissor pocket. The scissors fit nicely inside.

Myrna: Thanks again for sending me all these materials. If you look at the 1st picture, you'll see I used everything (but a couple strands of thread). The kit was excellent! The lining material matches nicely. I'm thrilled to have this lovely set!

Looks wonderful... and you are very welcome! I'm going to try to finish up the 'putting together' on Monday. Then maybe I'll try the needlebook thing. :-)

Fantastic Carol! Looks great! I ordered the chart for the scissor case - are the other charts included with that?

You did a great job finishing
the set. The Gingher Lanell
scissor is a perfect match
to the set.
