A Tiny Project

"Coq Au Pins" Needle Nanny
This is what I did on Monday. Who would guess something so small would take so long to stitch. It is only 1 1/2 inches wide and 1 inch tall. I have a kit to finish it into a Needle Nanny and will do that tomorrow (really today) after my eyes have had a rest. It is stitched 1 over 1 on a 28 count linen I found in my stash. Not sure what the color is but it looks more gray green. I used Dragon Floss "Midnight Mist" for it. Now I'm going to do the matching scissor fob and the two of them will be a Birthday gift for someone in Aug. I have 3 birthdays to stitch for in Aug and I better get busy on them so I'm not late.
I would also like to say a BIG Thank You to everyone who has left comments on my blog. I started it just to track my stitching progress but all the comments have really helped me keep going on some of the projects when I just think they are standing still.
Until next time....Happy Stitching

It looks very cute. But I have not the slightest clue what a Needle Nanny is.

Rene,
This is so pretty!! I love how it looks muted, almost aged. Looking forward to see it all completed as I have never heard of a needle nanny, but logic tells me it is a place to leave your threaded needles while working on a project (or just leaving your needles in general when they are not in use).

I know what you mean about the eyes needing a rest after over-one work! It looks good, though. :)
