Valie and I exchanged gifts - for me - one box was blue; one box was red. Amid other 'blue' gifts were these beautiful Eiffel Tower scissors and a trio of lavender cushions - their scent is just heavenly. Thank you so much Valie. Would you like to see some red gifts?

Today I will start the model for Sew Winter. I have linen and thread so I will print off the chart and I'm ready to go.

The sun is shining and I feel good.

Thanks for visiting
Take care

    What a wonderful package of gifts from Valie and with a real French flavour too!

    The scissors are absolutely amazing, what a great souvenir and the lavender must smell heavenly and very reminiscent of lavender fields in Provence stretching as far as the eye can see.
    It's a beautiful day here and one for doing fun enjoyable things.
    Hugs Angela

    EEk, what a beautiful gift!

    I'm so glad you've got sunshine (we do too) today! Cozy rainy days might be good for stitching--but super sunny is my favorite--I love to curl up in a spot like a happy little cat and stitch.

    These scissors will cut absolutely nothing ! They are unfortunately just for the show...
    For the wonderers, they were found at L'Entrepôt, in the Rue de Passy, Paris 16th Arrondissement...
