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!!!

Chicken Pin Cushion

Here is my latest finished project.

It's a Twisted Oaks Design called Coq Au Pins - A Collection of Stitching Smalls.

I will also be doing the Needle Nanny, Scissors Pocket and of course the Fob.

I have a couple more finished projects,
but I seem to be having
trouble loading multiple pictures.

I guess I need more computer knowledge.

Until next time, keep stitching.

Grandson's Christmas Ornament

I stitched this ornament for my youngest son, 19 years ago. I really liked the pattern and now I have stitched it for my grandson's first Christmas.

I finished the stitching a couple days ago and did the rest of the finishing today.

I have had a pretty productive finishing weekend.

Hope everyone has a good week.

Keep Stitching.

A fine day to do some finishing

Well the weather here in Minnesota is snowing and blowing, so it is a good day to stay in and get some finishing done.

My major project of late has been a Christmas stocking for my grandson. I finally finished stitching it last night and today I made it into a stocking.

I am quite excited about that. I have not been able to stitch any "smalls" or finish off some of the smalls I have stitched. I plan on doing some of that tonight and this week.

Here is a picture of the finished stocking.

I also wanted to make an origami ort bag, here is the result of that.

Now I am going to enjoy sitting in front of the fire and stitch and watch a movie. Who cares how cold it is outside!!

Until next time, keep stitching.
