Yet another scissor fob!

My Embroiderers Guild has a "stash enhancement" room and it was there I picked up an old needlework magazine circa 1994??? The previous owner had torn out several pages but I was delighted to find an article about C A Wells and the instructions for this scissor fob. I stitched it on Edinburgh 36 count linen colour sandstone with DMC threads (Gold and two shades of blue). Two sides have a wonderful trefoil on them in blue and gold while the other has the initial. Each segment has a chain stitch outline and is joined by overlocking stitch. It really is a beautifully compact little fob.
