MAW Exchange for Melissa

Melissa has emailed me to let me know that she has received the MAW Exchange that I sent to her a few days ago. Melissa had wished for, I believe, either a strawberry emery, a scissor pocket or a mattress pincushion. I told her I would be happy to make a scissor pocket for her, and she accepted my gesture. I asked her what colors she likes. She said "lime green." Well, OK then! I surfed ONS sites to choose the limiest green I could find... had to go by colors on a monitor, and I hope this choice worked for her...

I love seeing this scissor pocket pop up occasionally on various blogs with some wonderful color variations. This one is no exception - the green you chose is gorgeous! (And how can you not love something called Irish Kiss?)

I just LOVE the scissor pocket design (my favourite of all her designs, I think) - and that colour just looks wonderful :D
