A new neighborhood/retired Gingher scissors available


A new neighborhood is now underway... here is a peek at what I started tonight on Bine's Neighborhood Round Robin. As you can see, she set her fabric up as a Neighborhood Row. Very nice idea! I will keep secret on what chart I am using... ;-) The color is off Bine - my house for you is red, not black or navy as it appears here.

Mike has some retired Ginghers available right now! He has Sophia and Olivia left-handed 8" Dressmaker Shears, and he has Olivia 5" scissors available here They are beauties!! The cats have been busy! Tonight I heard some rustling noises across the room, and when I looked beside the love seat, I saw that Ava had climbed into a stitching tote that I keep there holding some of my more neglected WIPS. Looks like she found a new room for herself.
And last night, Beau took over my stitching chair for a bit... :-)

I hope everyone has a good weekend! I had to bring home work from the office today. My big project ends on Tuesday, so I just need to push ahead a little more and then, all going well, life will be back to normal!!

Looks like Ava was caught in the act, especially since her look seems to be saying "What?!" LOL!

That's a lovely neighbourhood so far. Looking forward to seeing what you stitch on it.

Aww look at Ava. She wants to join in your stitching. And couldn't you just tickle that fluffy tummy. Beau looks so comfortable.

Your kitties always crack me up, Carol. They are not only beautiful, but they have such obvious giant-sized personalities!!

What a great idea doing the neighbourhood in a row! It looks great.
Ava is such a cutie! Beau reminds me so much of the Persian I grew up with named Taffy. He was a red tabby and everytime you turned around he was seated in a chair like that!

Kajsa said...

The kitties are so cute, they must keep you busy.
