About

Welcome. I am a retired software engineer and needlework shopowner. I'm married to a very supportive man and currently have two pug babies, Lester and Otis.

I love stitching and teaching stitching. Counted thread needlework appeals to my logical mind and soothes my soul. Cross stitch, hardanger, drawn thread, and especially band samplers. I knit when I'm not stitching.

I also love gadgets, especially embroidery scissors. Hence, the creation of beautiful scissor fobs. I started out trying to think of something to make for the ladies in my stitch group and before I knew it I had about 2 dozen fobs designed! And most stitchers can use all the help they can get with counting, so I added counting pins for needlepoint and cross stitch.

Welcome. I am a retired software engineer and needlework shopowner. I'm married to a very supportive man and currently have two pug babies, Lester and Otis.

I love stitching and teaching stitching. Counted thread needlework appeals to my logical mind and soothes my soul. Cross stitch, hardanger, drawn thread, and especially band samplers. I knit when I'm not stitching.

I also love gadgets, especially embroidery scissors. Hence, the creation of beautiful scissor fobs. I started out trying to think of something to make for the ladies in my stitch group and before I knew it I had about 2 dozen fobs designed! And most stitchers can use all the help they can get with counting, so I added counting pins for needlepoint and cross stitch. For those stitchers who strive to perfect their work I have pretty beaded eyeglass chains, lovely beaded laying tools/sewing stilettos, stitch pickers and needle threaders. And then a friend suggested I make stitch markers for knitters and voila! Adding bling to your needlework is just plain fun.

All scissor fobs in my shop are unique and made by me. I use glass and porcelain beads mostly, but I also use bone, wood, and acrylic ones sometimes depending on how the design comes to me. The tassels and cording are also handmade by me with embroidery floss.

A fob makes a great decoration for a purse or backpack. They add pizzazz to a china cabinet knob or armoire. I've even sold one as stethoscope bling! Personalize your tennis bag, keychain or briefcase with one. And because my fobs are attached by a loop of chain not a lobster claw, they will fit on any size scissor handles. However, if you prefer a lobster claw, just say so in the "Message from Buyer" box when you check out.

Some of my scissor fobs have coordinating counting pins. Links for coordinating items are in each listing. If the fob you like doesn't have coordinating pins (or vice versa), please convo me. I'd be happy to make a set for you.
