WHO IS ELLA? And model stitching......

So Jill and I ran to Joann's to check out the Labor Day Sale stuff that we thought we needed. Jill wanted some DMC and I was looking at the omnigrid ruler that was on sale--50% off. Well $60 later for both of us and look what we found. A new gingher scissors we didn't even know about. Because you always have to check out the scissors when you are at Joann's.

Here they are: Ella's. Kind of funky I think.

Since our little stitching group has a "scissors pack" we only have to find 4 more. We bought the three that were at my Joann's.

What a great way to start out our Labor Day Weekend!!!!

Also I can share now that I am doing some model stitching for Blackbird Designs.
Click on the link to see "Clara Ellen" which was my first model stitch.

I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday weekend.

Happy Stitching:)

Thanks for sharing the info about the new Ginghers!

I am very impressed by you doing some model stitching. I was at the Tulsa Blackbird Designs weekend that you were there. Little did I know I was amongst celebritys such as you! :)

OMG, I was just at Joann's! They always hide the ginghers in the back so I will have to go back and ask.

Congrats on the model stitching. You did a wonderful job on Clara Ellen!

Dang it, I just came back from Joanne's and they didn't have any, but that location usually doesn't. I'm going to have to check the other one - I love those black and white scissors.

Congratulations on Clara Ellen. It must be so much fun to be a model stitcher!

You had a great weekend. The new Ginghers are gorgeous and I love the BBD one that you model stitched for them. It is a definite one I have to do.
Lots of Love

My Joann's never have the cute scissors--I think we are just too small of a city :(

love those scissors, might have to go check my Joann's. :)

isn't it fun to model stitch and know before everyone else what the pattern will look like and that you stitched it. :) great job!

I have been coveting those scissors ever since I saw a pic of them! How lucky that you got them at Joann's.
