A while ago I finished the embroidery part on my Tudor rose scissor keep. Only the making up was left. The instructions told me to sew it up and add the tassel and the cord for the scissor. I felt there was something missing, namely something a bit sparkly. The Tudor rose is a royal sign after all and the royals are known for their crowns and sparkly jewellery (amongst other things of course). Not having the means to buy diamonds or pearls I settled for these small red beads.
Yesterday I finished my scissor keep and this post is all about showing you the result. I'm very happy with how it turned out.
This is the first embroidery project that I have finished, ever. Although I started with embroidery when I was very young - I still remember my first project, a baby Mickey and Minnie Mouse playing with blocks - I never finished it. After that I took up embroidery again and again but never seemed to have the patience to finish it. There are quite a couple of unfinished ones somewhere in a closet (including the half-finished baby Mickey and Minnie one).
But I finally managed to finish one! Which feels like a small victory to me. Working on this little scissor keep has made me realise that I really like embroidery. When my mum came to visit me, she brought me some supplies for a new project, I will show it to you very soon.
The scissor keep nicely doubles as a pin cushion. Which comes in very handy because I don't have one. So this project is not only my first ever finished embroidery project but also a handy two-in-one!
