..no more guessing!

It's finished...

...my little "useful" thing...




A little "amulet"...

...that doubles (or quadruples) as a thread organiser, scissor keeper and pin cushion!

...complete with two little bells that jingle....


There. You can relax now :-)

Hi Chris how are you going?
What a great idea you have created here and I love the little bells too!

Chris Gray said...

Thanks Alex...that was the idea!

I'm doing fine thanks Suzi....the bells tinkle beautifully! :-)

Eva said...

Very useful! Is the scissor strap long enough? I love the ornament. It looks Mongolian to me.

Diane said...

such a pretty little 'useful thing' They are a joy to have around aren't they?

Chris Gray said...

Yes Eva...it is long enough. Any more and it would be a nuisance I think.

It's actually an Indian block, but looks quite Mongolian when you can see half of it!

Yes Diane! A joy indeed :-)

Sara said...

Chris Gray said...

Thank you Sara...

...that's the idea! :-)

Amulets fascinate me especially with jingling bells!

Chris Gray said...

...been meaning to get one of these done for quite some time...

Glad I managed it at last!
