I needed a break from Mystery IX tonight, especially now that I see there should be no real problem with getting it done this month (barring any unforeseen circumstances). So, I picked up Bordeaux Sampler for a while this evening. After all, I had not touched it since November 19th! I got most of the wide band in Part 2 finished... save for some more over one grapes, that I will see if I can do at work tomorrow and Tuesday.
I got a few emails about the Gingher scissors Mike is now selling. He says he will have the Julia and Cheetah scissors in tomorrow. He has only the 4" embroidery scissors. He will happily sell those to my blog readers directly, just let me know if you want some. I don't know exact prices, but all are in the low 20's - he had to pay different prices for each style, so he will calculate from there as soon as he can. There has been a wonderful response from many of you - thanks for that! He will likely be getting more Ginghers in the near future - he likes them too :-) (And a little birdie told me a pair of Cheetahs will be in my stocking this year too!).
Stitched on today: Started a gift (spent a lot of time on that) and Bordeaux Sampler
