Cross stitch accessories

My pretties from Ginas Fobs and Froggers and I just love them. Made two scissor fobs before these arrived and plan to do more with the hope of maybe selling some, but want to give them to my nieces at Christmas time. If I get enough done then they can pick and hopefully find what they like. I don't, however, have any plans to make needle minders.

Update: Hometown Christmas & Thanksgiving

Update: New start on Hometown Christmas from Tilton yesterday. 1 over 1 full cross stitch on 25ct. Very long way to go, if my eyes can hold out on this fabric count.

Also, working on Thanksgiving, a freebie from Tilton. This one is 2 over 1 on 18ct Aida, so will go much faster and it's a much smaller chart.

I have more on the go but not going to put pictures up yet, will wait until I pull them out again. Never can figure out a good rotation system for myself.  Did 2 scissor fobs and have bought more beads, charms and other goodies for making more. Will put pictures up of those when I get more done. Lots and lots of charts I'd love to do and have in my folders. I doubt I'll ever get to all of them so I think of them as buying art, although there will be some I will get to and hopefully finish so they can find a home on my walls. I'd also like to find some smaller projects to do for Christmas and I'm sure I have patterns in books right here, just need to go through my stash to find those.
