MERRY (scissors) CHRISTMAS

I hope everyone is having a great Christmas morning. I just needed to post what "Santa" brought me last night.

As you can tell by my blogging I have a scissor fetish. I have been lusting over the Gingher Gloriana scissor for sometime now. I have not been able to bring myself to pay the high price for them on Ebay. Well my wonderful husband who is quite the Ebay fanatic went through all the trouble to create a new user name (Scissorsnut) so that he could bid on the gloriana's to give me for Christmas. He always humors me and my addictions. I love him for that!!!

So here is my newest acquisition:


Also stitched a couple of new fobs. The first one is for my daughter who is in the Marines and just got back to the states now for good from Okinawa, and has taken up her mom's habit of stitching. So she just received her first pair of gingher scissors from me and, of course I had to make a fob for it. Now she can start her own collection of scissors and fobs. I always like to pull another person over to the "dark side" of the addiction of collecting. I stitched the fob from the Prairie Schooler book "The Garden Alphabet" Kelsey Dunlevy.



Here is the new Prairie Schooler "freebie" snowman I stitched and made into a fob.



Now I am going to get ready to have my children over for Christmas dinner, and maybe get in a little stitching.

Have a great Christmas day and keep stitching.

Life is good!!!

Joanus,
A Gloriana, at last. I am jealous, however, you deserve one. You do so many great things for alot of people. I am glad Kelsey finally made it home. It sounds like you are having a wonderful Christmas.

Hi,
Please send me your email address and I will add you as an author of the SMALLS blog. Things have been a little hectic for me around here for the past few months and if you sent a request I must have missed it...sorry about that! I loved your SMALL that you had Cathy share. Please allow me a couple of days to get you added as I never know these days when I will find computer time.
Thank you.
