I also got some pretty pretty scissors for my scissor collection. Now that I know that I'm not the only one that collects scissors I can openly talk about it. I bought these:
These are Bohin scissors from France and are called Giakarta I think.They are so pretty :)
It's Herb Garden by Little House Needlework.
I started it Friday night on the train. The majority got done last night though. I literally only had time to stitch "With Friends" during my 3 nights of working. I'm taking a break from Awake the Dawning Day to stitch up some gifts. Herb Garden was suppose to be a gift but I changed my mind and will only stitch a portion of it for the recipient and ummm (jeez I'm drawing up blanks left and right!) alter! Yes I will alter it some way to make a bourse out of it so I can put my other stitchy things in it.
I must go now, I work the holiday (tonight and the 4th) so I have to get ready now. I think I'm drawing up so many blanks because I'm doing 5 nights in the span of 6, these are my last 2. Ask anyone working 12hr nights and they'll tell you it's hard! TTFN TREE SKIRT!
