A Few Things to Share

I heard from Nancy K. that she received my Fall Fair Squares. Here is the front square...


And here is the back square...


Does anyone recognize the design? It is part of Carol R.'s "Sew Autumn". The thread is Silk n'Colors "Autumn Bouquet". I love how it turned out. I wonder what Carol will think?

I got 2 new pair of scissors today! There was a "pink" exchange over on the HoE and Margaret gave her partner a pair of scissors with the pink ribbon pattern on the handles. I inquired about these to her and she graciously sent me a pair. I will be going to the LNS to get a few things in return for her. Thank you Margaret!!


The other pair I order from Joann's on-line with a gift card I got for my birthday. They are like scissors you used in school, rounded tips and everything--except they are Gingher's. I just had to have them.

After quite the day, I am going to honker down, stitch and sip hot drinks!

Have a great weekend!

I like this idea of taking only part of the design, it looks great and you did a wonderful job.
You can never have enough scissors can you.

Your Fall squares are lovely! I originally started to stitch Sew Autumn in the same thread but changed my mind and re-started with Raisin Wine. I think I might pick up the part-stitched one and finish it off after seeing yours!

Love your new Ginghers - what is it about scissors that we just have to have more? LOL
