Got Scissors?

About 2 weeks ago at our weekly Friday night stitching extravaganza at my good friend Joans, we were feeling like we needed a little scissor fix. There hadn't been any new Gingher's for quite some time. We decided to contact Mike & Carol's online store about the Premax scissors. Needless to say, here is what I own now.

The one on the far right still in the package, I did already have. Now I have all 6 Premax scissors. And wouldn't you know, as soon as we placed the orders for these scissors, these came out.

These are the new Gingher Criss scissors that just came out last week. They are a Joann exclusive and they aren't even at all the Joann's yet. My friend Joan, had to go across town to get these for our stitching group. Thank you Joan!

So now, I need to get some fobs made. This weekend I stitched Brightneedle's "Pretty in Pink" and changed the colors to fit one of the Premax's. This is my pink stitch for the month.

It is stitched on 40ct Ivory (over 2) with DMC. I am very pleased with how it turned out.

Becky's Ornament
I heard from Becky yesterday, the she received my ornament for our ornament swap.

This is Lizzie Block Flip Its--December. It is stitched on 32ct Lambswool Belfast linen with DMC floss as charted. I remember Becky saying on her blog awhile back that next Christmas she is going to decorate with gingerbread boys so that is why I decided on this one.

I hope everyone had a great weekend and a wonderful Easter. Thanks for stopping by. Have a great week!

Where did you get those little green felt thingies for your scissors? Mine are still in the package because I don't have any point protectors for them :(
