Scissor fob swap

Last month there was a scissor fob swap in a yahoo group I belong to. My partner was Jana C. (no blog) and this is what I made for her. The design is a freebie I found online and it's stitched over one with DMC 4210 and added some beads to the edge. On the back I stitched Jana's initial again using an alphabet freebie I found online. When I showed this to mom she asked if my partners name was ... and began to say name that started with F, and I was like "mmmm no, that's a J!!!" And she began to turn it around and then said "oh, yes I can see it now!"...but I think she was not convinced It does look like a "J", right?

El mes pasado hubo un intercambio de "scissor fob" en un grupo de yahoo al que pertenezco. Mi compañera de intercambio fue JanaC. (no blog) y esto es lo que hice para ella. El diseño es un grafico gratuito que encontre en internet; esta bordado con hilo DMC4210 uno sobre uno y le añadi mostacillas alrededor del fob. En la parte trasera puse la inicial de Jana usando un alfabeto gratuito. Cuando se lo mostre a mama ella me pregunto si el nombre de mi compañera era ... y comenzo a decirme nombres que empezaban con F y le dije "mmmm nop! es una J!!!" , entonces comenzo a darle vueltas y verlo de distintos angulos y finalmente me dijo "ah, claro ahora si la veo!"...pero la verdad creo que no estaba muy convencida Si parece una "J", no?

Beautiful gift! I think it looks kinda like an F, but I'm sure Jana will know it's a J.

Hi Carla,

Very nice exchange you and Jana
did together. Your scissor fob
turned out beautifully. I love
that shade of red, and the design
is so lovely. Tantes Zolder is
an incredible site for free and
wonderful designs, isn't it.
And don't worry, that initial
does look like a J to me. Really!

Cheers!
