These are scissor and needle holders made from a Patchwork Posse newsletter pattern.
March's challenge over at the YOE blog was to make these mushroom and toadstool houses from The Little House By The Sea. I love to sit back and do some hand work. I forgot how much I enjoyed free form embroidery. Even though there is a suggested idea for the embroidery, you are basically left with the decision on how to decorate your houses.
