I have new scissors - not one new pair but two! The top scissors are the latest Gingher Alicia in my favourite colour. These are only available at Joann stores in the US and Brenda of Time 2 Xstitch
very kindly offered to get me some and mail them to England. They are now sitting in my 'Gingher' glass frog. The second pair of scissors are French which Paule (no blog) very kindly offered to get for me. These are now sitting in my 'French' glass frog. Stitchers really are the best. A huge thank you to both Brenda and Paule!
As you know I've been extremely busy with the Mystery SAL and I must admit that I did not realise how much work this would be. However, it's great fun and it good to see the fabrics and threads chosen by each participant and how different each one looks. For those of you who feel you have missed out on signing up for the SAL, I will be releasing the chart at the end of the SAL at a nominal cost.
My personal stitching time has been limited but I did manage to finish Tante Minna and will be framing her once I have stained and distressed the frame that I picked up at Hobby Craft last week. Sew Halloween is nearly stitched and as soon as this is done and I have 'finished' it it will be released for sale. Jane Rees has had a few stitches put into her and I have started a new page. Pictures of all WIPs will follow in due course.
It's raining and very gloomy here today. I really hope that there are few more days of sunshine left before Autumn sets in. Our Florida vacation has been postponed due to work commitments and I doubt we will be able to get away until May 2012.
Thanks for visiting and have a good weekend
