Three 2010 Finishes

Have you ever wondered what you could do with that 2" wide strip of linen or evenweave you have laying around?
Here is what I did with a couple pieces I had left over.
l to r: mini biscornu (01/03), mini cube (01/02), & mini pillow (01/03) scissor fob's & my snazzy new scissors I bought at HobbyLobby for 40% off. I'll be using them for my Hardanger work, as they are very sharp and pointy. Here is the opposite side of the mini biscornu fob.

And here is the opposite side of the mini pillow fob.

Both are stitched on 28ct. white lugana and lined with white satin. They were stitched with Caron Wildflowers thread in Burnt Toast (old dye lot).
The mini cube fob has 5 Hardanger sides and then my initials and 2010 on the bottom. It is stitched on 32ct. dark khaki or olive linen using Caron Wildflowers thread in Fiesta.
All three are my own designs that I free handed (no pattern) to help occupy my mind.
