The NEW EMMA'S are Here!!!!

My DH (scissornut)went out today at lunchtime and bought me the new
Gingher Emma's.He actually bought me a "pair and a spare".
He even got them for 50% off!!! And here they are:

I also received an exchange over the weekend.
It was the biscornu exchange.
I received an Elizabethan biscornu from Rowyn in
New Zealand. She also senta very cute
Country Cottage Kids pattern - Garden Girl.

I also got my order from Down Sunshine Lane.
Those goodies were compliments of my daughter Kelsey,
who sent me a generous gift certificate for my birthday.
My gifts include: Victoria's Quaker by A mon ami Pierre--
which I have been lusting for, With Needle and Thread by
Blackbird Designs,Netty's sampler by Stacy Nash,
Petits oiseaux byTournicoton,Quaker Huswif by Elegant Stitch,
Quietness and Confidence by My Big toe
and the Fabric for the stitching block, and a small titanium scissors.

Then I did finish my March ornament for the Bride's Tree SAL:
All in all a pretty good weekend and start to this week.

Keep Stitching.
