Forget Me Nots and new scissors




I took the above picture to show off my new scissors but alas the scissors didn't come out so clear but what a pretty picture of my Forget Me Nots! Just a tiny sprig picked from my son's garden.




And here are my new scissors from Nogent made by the very talented Monsieur Roulot. These are a special edition which he had for sale at the AEF in Paris back in February and which I neglected to purchase. I had been thinking how silly I was not to have got them so I asked my dear friend if she would contact M Roulot. She did and I am now the proud owner of yet another pair of his beautiful French scissors. Thank you M Roulot, my dear friend Valie and her sweet daughter who delivered them to my home.

I have been stitching on my new design this week - Sew Fushcia. Stitched in a vibrant pink on antique white linen it has an intricate border, an unusual alphabet and some pretty motifs. It's due for release very shortly so please come again.

Thank you for visiting and have a good weekend
Take care

    Can't wait for the new Fuschia design ! Might be my next project, then. I'll start looking at my pink/red threads tonight - I can think of some very pretty Vikki Clayton silks...

    I adore your little scissors!
    I'm also intrigued by the fuschia design. I love fuschias. I buy them every Summer but few survive the winter. So I just buy more the next year!!
