New Scissors!!!!

Today when I arrived home from work these were waiting for me. Thanks to Jackie I now have my newest Gingher Scissors---Mia. Plus Jackie sent me the purple and pink scissors to go with the blue scissors I all ready had. Now I have the whole set. Apparently they called Cotton Candy Embroidery Scissors.

You just can't have enough scissors!!!!!

Home again and back:

David and I were back home in Minnesota the last weekend in September for his 3M 30th work anniversary service awards dinner at the Convention Center in Minneapolis. We had a great time and were glad David is still employed with 3M even if we have to live in Aberdeen, South Dakota.

So while I was home I got to pick up my new Gingher Elena scissors:) I was very excited. Now I have found out about another new scissors-- Mia, and my good friend Jackie has found some and I now have another scissors waiting for me back home. I can't wait to get that one too.

Here are my new Elena's:
I also had these hand painted scissors waiting for me. A surprise gift from another good stitching friend Chris. She found the wooden scissors at Joann's and a friend of her daughters did the painting and personalizing on them. I just love them. A great reminder of my days in Aberdeen.
Here is a closer look at the saying, which is Life is good in Aberdeen. And that really is Aberdeen's motto.

I have not had much stitching time here in Aberdeen since I am working 7 days a week and sometimes 12 hour days. I really miss my stitching time. But I did manage to get these squares done. I am doing the Ackworth Friendship Book with my stitching group. These are Cathy B's squares. I am really enjoying stitching these. I have also finished a couple of exchanges but can't show them, as I have just mailed them.

Lastly I found this crop-a-dile in this case at Walmart for $25 and had to have it. I have used it once and it was great. It was the case that sold me. Another "toy" for my collection.

So until next time Thanks for stopping by and Happy Stitching.
