I think just about everyone would be in 2010 now. I hope you've all celebrated in a good way and still have the mind to remember it all. It was quite hot for our New Year's Eve which left you feeling a bit lethargic. I had a few drinks of wine myself, and then got on the net to place a stash order with The Silver Needle's New Year's Eve Sale. Not a good combination. I ordered more than I should - again!
Meanwhile I received the other day an order I placed with Anita's Little Stitches before Christmas. It included scissors and fobs.
Swarovski Scissor Fobs
I got the pearl, pink, lavender, and red. The stones in them are a bit bigger than I thought they would be, but I still like them.
A few more scissors to add to my collection.
Kelmscott scissors - Tudor Rose, and Elizabeth 1
Sullivans Heirloom - Antique Silver
Bohin from France - Middle Age
Favourites here are the Tudor Rose and Middle Age. Tudor Rose are so tiny, they're gorgeous! The Middle Age are lovely to handle.
I also got a couple of Dovo scissors which are made in Germany. One with a black satin Teflon finish, and the other a red and blue finish. I thought the red and blue would go with an Americana fob that I would have in my stash to make up. These scissors are both lighter in weight to what I thought they'd be.
Out of the fobs my favourite ones are the pearl and pink.
I haven't started any new stitching yet. I need to work out what I want to do next. I'll have to go have a look through my stash and see what jumps out at me.
May we all have a very productive year of stitching!
