Nina's giveaway!

Nina has a great giveaway on her blog! If you want to win, all you have to do is post a picture of your scissors on your own blog and then leave a comment (here). To get an extra entry you need to put the above logo on your blog with link back to her blog. The game will end on April 30 at mid-night. The prize is not only a pair of scissors with a fob and some hand dyed thread but the beautiful box too. The winner will be announced on May 1st. I would wish you luck but I want to win myself so good luck to me!!

And here are just a few of my pairs of scissors - trust me I have many, many more and one day I will sort them all out and post another picture! The glass frog belonged to my grand-mother and is part of a dressing table set. It has a domed lid and is a very pretty blue. The flower bud is from the clematis which runs along the back wall of our house and will soon be in full flower - don't you just love Spring?

I have been stitching some and I hope to be able to do some more this afternoon and post a photo tomorrow. It's slow going but I am enjoying putting in at least a few stitches!

Thanks for visiting
Take care

    Love your grandmother's glass frog!
    I haven't seen one that color. I'm always looking out for more of them, but what a treasure to have one that belonged to your grandmother:)
