I buckled down tonight and got back to work on the much ignored and neglected Bordeaux Sampler. As a result, I found out that I actually like this sampler again. It had fallen a bit out of favor with me due to the many over one (on 40 ct!!) grape clusters in Part 2. I had been stitching this sampler primarily at work, but tonight I brought it home and finished those clusters under my Ott-Lite. Quite easier and more pleasant! And, I was really happy when I printed out Part 3 tonight and saw that what I had assumed were more over one grape clusters are really rather fun looking rhodes stitches! So, I am back on track with this sampler once again! I have the next four days off, so along with finishing Dianne's Neighborhood Round Robin, I will probably also finish Part 2 of Bordeaux Sampler and maybe even start Part 3 (it looks like a quicker part).
Mike has one last pair of Gingher Cheetah 4" embroidery scissors for sale. First one who asks for them may have them. He is asking $22 plus $2.50 shipping (in the US - if you are out of the US, no problem - just let me know and he will look up the shipping with the USPS). Drop me an email or a comment here for these, and I will then send you his payment info. It may be a little while before he gets more Ginghers, so if you want these, grab them :-) -sold, thank you!
