More to Share...

Just two days and I already have alot to share!

First, as you probably already know, October is Breast Cancer awareness month. Annemiek over on Once Upon a Stitch wrote a post about pink threads. She is asking people to leave comments about their favorite pink thread and is going to donate 25 eurocents for each comment to Pink Ribbon. I encourage everyone to do this. If you know anyone who has gone through this, it is a terrible disease.

I participated in Round #26 of the Fair and Square. Marie W. was my partner and here is what I stitched for her.

JBW Designs
French Apple
32ct. Natural Lite Belfast linen
GAST Cherry Wine

And here are the squares I received from Marie.

They are very stunning! Marie says this is from a charted folk designs book by Dover. They are lovely and I love the thread choice too! Thank you Marie.

And last but not least, and I can't believe I forgot to share this on my last post...the new Gingher scissors...Tessa! I got mine on Sunday. This one is a little retro looking.

Now, we had heard that this was going to be Gingher's last designer scissors. However, the packaging is a little different and it says on it "Manufactured for Fiskars". Not sure what this means, if anything. Only time will tell.

Well that's it for now. Thanks for visiting and have a great day!

Happy Stitching :)
