Weekend Update

I wanted to do this last night but got home too late from my weekly dinner for my parents.

On Saturday, I received my Autumn Fair Squares from Stephanie. She stitched "Fall Squared" by Lizzie Kate. They are very cute. Thank you Stephanie!

I guess it was a "scissor" kind of a weekend. I got the 2 new Gingher scissors, Roberta and Sarah. My BFF, Joan, got the Sarah's for me at Joann's and she got the Roberta's thru Carol and Mike's online store.

Then, on Sunday, I went to my sisters, and she gave me these:

I was hoping to have my next pink stitch done, but hopefully tomorrow. I also have 3 exchanges I have to get out by Wednesday. Everything is done, I just have to put each of them together.

A funny thing happened to me on Saturday night. I was busy stitching away when the floor lamp I was using started blinking off and on. Hmmmmm, it puzzled me. I checked to make sure that it was fully plugged in and it was. However, it kept going off and on. I unplugged it and plugged it into another outlet. Same thing--off and on. Being the smart girl I am, I went to my closet to get the brand new extra bulb I bought a few months back. Put it in, plugged it back into the original outlet and voila'--I was back in business. Boy, was I glad I had that bulb. However, I do have another floor lamp, 2 table top lights and 1 that clips on the headboard of my bed. I could never be without a stitching light!

Well, that's it for today. Have a good one.

Aw, thanks for the plug ;-) Cathy got me some Sarahs too - I am so excited! They don't have them in the stores here... our Joann Fabrics must be smaller or something. Mike has some other floral scissors coming in soon... waiting for them to clear customs and then his wholesaler will give him a price... cannot recall the brand name, but will show you when they come in - they look like Ginghers :-)

Wow, love all those scissors - I am a scissor-phile, but Ginghers are difficult to find here, so I'm very envious :) Glad you enjoyed the squares - I certainly love mine :)
