Inspirations describes the project thus:
If whitework is your passion or you like to try different techniques, this sweet scissor fob will make a perfect project. Worked in the style of Guimarães embroidery from Portugal, drawn thread work forms a frame for the bullion flower and eyelet at the centre of the design. The red silk lining provides an elegant contrast to the crisp white linen. The fob is finished with a tassel and red crystal beads.
There is also a Mountmellick project in the same issue, but it isn’t one of mine – it is by Deborah Love. It features strawberries (not actually a traditional subject matter for Mountmellick ), and looks gorgeous. Deborah and I were both tutors at Beating Around the Bush a few years back, and it was great to get to know her better because as her surname would suggest, she’s quite lovely!
