I've made my bed......

And now my scissors will sleep in it.
I decided to make my own scissors bed for this LHN design. I am happy with the results. I have put my Gingher Glorianna scissor in it's new bed. It is nice to have this project complete.

I have had a couple of people comment on the background of some pictures I took in which I used this tabletopper. Carol R asked that I post a picture of the whole design, so here it is. It is a pattern called Sampler Tabletopper by Dutch Treat Designs. I stitched this a couple of years ago.

Then I have added a couple more scissors to my collection. The top two are from Yuko's scissors blog. The small one is a Kelscott designs little gem--in brown new from market.

Now I have a BIG birthday coming up and I am not real excited about that, although it sure is better than the alternative!!!! All my friends know that I usually remind them weeks in advance that "My Birthday is coming", and they say it goes on forever, so with that being said I received this cute little card from my BFF Lori.

Here's what was on the inside. So my birthday has officially started:)
And I will be celebrating with the stitching girls with a 4 day birthday retreat starting March 25 and going until March 28. I can not wait. It will be a great time of stitching, laughing , eating and a massage!!!

And since I am having a BIG birthday I have always wanted a cabinet for my floss. So I told that to my DH and he said go ahead and order it. So here it is. Now I just need to get 454 floss tags wrapped. I will be working on that probably until my next birthday.

Happy Birthday Joanus!
I love this post! Your bed looks great. OK, that's not the cabinet I thought. I haven't seen that one. The one that I was thinking was alot smaller. Very nice! You have the best DH around. He definitely would walk on glass! I am looking forward to retreat also. Already started planning (scheming?)!
