Mike and I had a lot of running around to do today, so stitching time was limited. We went to Massachusetts this evening and had a wonderful belated birthday dinner with my Mom. She and I split a bottle of wine... this also limited my stitching today - LOL. I did, however, manage to stitch a gift for a friend... and I managed to finish the fence in the bottom right corner of Mystery IX... but those urns... not after drinking wine! They will wait until tomorrow!
And, I am in Gingher Heaven today! Joann Fabrics had all of their Ginghers at 50% off today. I had been eyeing these Amanda Designer Series 4" Embroidery Scissors for a while now... and the sale came along and with some luck I was able to get them today - the last pair! They are bright and so pretty! My collection is growing now! In a short couple of months, I have been able to get Lanell, Jamie, Alyssa, Julia (have to wait until Christmas for these - Mike wrapped them and put them under the tree - what a tease!!), Olivia and Amanda... Like I said recently, I really don't need this addiction! Anyhow, here you go - meet the new member of my scissor family! I can't wait until the Olivias come in from ebay... after Christmas I will post a picture of the entire "family" - LOL!
