Today I received the scissors that I had ordered from Yuko
. I ordered type A and Yuko also enclosed type B. She is such a sweet generous girl - thank you Yuko. She has recently started to sell the most unusual types of scissors so a visit to her 'Be Happy Scissors' *here*
is a must. She has four types of scissors for sale and her service is fast so, if you are a scissors fanatic (and what stitcher isn't?), do have a look and see if you can resist!
A while ago I won a giveaway on Patti's Tapestry of Dreams
. She showed a piece of stitching and gave the winner a choice of finishing and, as I was happy just to win, I told Patti that any type of finishing was fine by me. Unfortunately poor Patti later informed me that she 'messed up' on the finishing of the original stitching and that she had decided to stitch something different. This beautiful stitched and finished Hearts pillow with both our initials on the reverse was her choice. As you know I love hearts so I was happy to receive both this and the pretty beaded scissor fob with a sunshine yellow tassel. Thank you Patti.
More recently I won a giveaway of threads on Danielle
's blog which threads arrived this morning. I certainly was not expecting the large amount of threads which arrived - a selection of WDW, Dinky Dyes and Crescent Colours. These threads are not widely available here and certainly not at my LNS so it will be great to try out these threads. Thank you Danielle.
And a few more photos of Canterbury. Click on the picture and check out 'Ye Olde Ducking Stool
' in the top left hand picture - I don't think I would like being 'ducked' in that cold wet river!
Thanks for visiting
