15 Years Ago Today

I can barely believe it has been fifteen years already...

Carol Ann Brunquell wed Michael Alan Sutcliffe

May 8, 1993

Ballardvale United Church, Andover, Massachusetts


I wanted to show you this really cute little scissor sheath that Ann Pettit gave to each of us in her class on Saturday. Isn't it sweet? I keep it on my new DMC Marbleized Scissors - my DH happens to be selling these pretty new scissors now. They come in purple and copper. The pair I have, believe it or not, are considered to be purple. The other pair we have (currently listed on ebay) is very dark and jeweled toned - gorgeous! If you want a purple pair, it is anyone's guess if they will be teal like mine or dark purple like the other pair he has. The copper ones, currently sold out, are very consistent and equally gorgeous. If you want a pair of these, they are only $8. Mike will be ordering more as early as tomorrow, so let me know if you want any. Postal rates are increasing in the US on Monday, so we don't know exact shipping costs, but these are very light and will cost almost nothing at all to mail... just let me know... they are wonderful to work with - nice sharp, precise blades.

Oh, and a little stitching to show you today... I was busy with exchange stitching for a while, but then I could not resist some time on A Quaker Christmas while watching the Red Sox and the Celtics at the same time tonight!

Stitched on today: Started SBEBB Feathered Friends exchange, and stitched on A Quaker Christmas **Mailed a PIF today
