Bordeaux Sampler Update/More Gingher Info

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

Bordeaux Sampler looks wonderful - nice to see it again! Glad to hear that Mike's doing well with his eBay biz ... though with those glorious Gingher scissors, it's not a wonder! :)

Lovely work on your Sampler! And congrats to Mike on his Ebay business. I'm sure he'll be very successful with it.

Looking fantastic, Carol. There are a ton of overone grapes in that section isn't there:)

I do like this one. So unusual. The colours look really vibrant.

I might be up for some of those scissors off Ebay after Christmas :o) I got some pennies for my birthday to spend. Going to wait and see what these other ones Mike's getting in are like before I decide. I've never actually seen these scissors here in the UK.

Lovely stitching Carol! I didn't really know anything about Gigher scissors (except that they were expensive!) Until reading your blog the past few months! You've have really educated me!
:o)

Hmmmm...do you think Mike will still have some of the Julia embroidery scissors after Christmas? I have a pair on my wishlist, and I don't know if anyone has purchased a pair for me (I'm thinking no, but I *might* be wrong...). If they haven't, I'll probably be in the market!!
