We are taking a bit of a departure this week to show you another kind of bling...as we visit Tommye Bunce of TJB Designs! Here you will find beautifully beaded scissor fobs, threaders, counting & marking pins, as well as knitting and crochet stitch markers. She also creates wonderful bookmarks in several styles and additional accessories.
Tommye is a retired software engineer and needlework shop owner. She loves stitching and teaching stitching. According to Tommye, counted thread needlework appeals to her logical mind and soothes her soul.She enjoys cross stitch, hardanger, drawn thread, and especially band samplers. When she is not stitching...she is knitting!
The cornerstone of her shop are her scissor fobs and coordinating counting pins for needlepoint and cross stitch as well as stitch markers for knitters and crocheters. In the artist's own words, here is how that product line got started: "I love gadgets, especially embroidery scissors. Hence, the creation of beautiful scissor fobs. I started out trying to think of something to make for the ladies in my stitch group and before I knew it I had about 2 dozen fobs designed! And most stitchers can use all the help they can get with counting, so I added counting pins for needlepoint and cross stitch. And then a friend suggested I make stitch markers for knitters and voila! Adding bling to your needlework is just plain fun..."
