Rosebuds of Friendship is scissors pouch with enough room for the scissors, a fob and some skeins of floss. The verse on the
back reads: Rosebuds of Friendship blossom unexpectedly! The design uses DMC floss and antique white Belfast as well as 1

Done over One: Autumn Alphabet (#17)
Autumn Alphabet is a small alphabet that uses one color of Silk īn Colors (Scarlet Honey) on 32 count light sand Belfast.
Itīs a fun and quick project and can be framed or finished into a needlebook or scissors fob. Mine is framed and the
included in the chart are for framing. Of course this design can be stitched over two as well.
Christmas Reindeer Sampler
This sampler is a square design and the verse reads: "I will hold Christmas in my heart and share my joy with you, AJK
The leaflet will provide an alphabet for stitchers to personalize their project. I used sand Edinburgh for this
one,though it could also be stitched on Belfast if stitchers would prefer a slightly lower count. Threads used are Weeks Dye
Works Garnet, Amber, Kudzu, Chestnut, Hazelnut and Onyx. I used one strand of floss.
Christmas ornament 2001
The Christmas ornament of this year features a different reindeer with a Christmastree and two birds. I used Light
Cashel for the ornament and the exact same Weeks Dye
Works (except for Hazelnut as it isnīt used in the pattern). The
finishing is done by stitching the pattern on a piece of felt with a blanket stitch.
Done over one: Winter Alphabet
This is the second desingin the Done Over One series, Winter Alphabet. I used antique white Belfast and Winter Sky Silk īn
Colors. The alphabet I designed is more winterlike, no curls just straight "harsh" letters, as winter can be. The
design is also very suitable for finishing as a scissor fob.
