Scissors, more scissors and a sneak peek!

These beautiful scissors are my latest finds from ebay. The top pair are marked 'Nogent' whilst the other pair have the intials GC on them - see the picture below for a closeup or better still click on the pictures for a really closeup view! I paid 5 euros for each pair - such a bargain.

I wonder who 'GC' was and how it came about that her/his scissors ended up on on ebay? Or were they a gift from G to C? I will never know but I do know that these scissors are a welcome addition to my collection and I will always treasure them.

Also in today's post I received a box containing these beautiful Sajou cart scissors from a dear friend in Florida - she knows who she is - thank you so much. These scissors have been on my wish list since Sajou released them but I never imagined that I would ever actually own a pair! I am so blessed to have such a generous friend.

And now a little tease. This is a sneak peek on my latest iStitch design. It is stitched on white (despite looking rather grey in the picture) 40ct Newcastle linen with four delicate shades of HDF silk threads. For want of a better name, I have called this one Sew Four and it will be available shortly.

We are having such awful weather here these past few days. I really hope that it brightens up over the weekend as the whole family are going to the Real Deal Scooter Club's 'White Cliffs Weekender' and it will be such a shame if it rains.

Thanks for visiting, have a good weekend and
Take care
