Just a quick post as I need to gather up my things and head out to meet some friends.
During the weekend I finished my final BBD class piece from the Stitchville retreat. This Tulip House Sampler goes with the box finish that I posted last Monday. Here it is all finished and framed (I tried my hand at framing this one by myself!) Looks good don't you think?
I have some new favorite scissors - they are Dovos. I've never used Dovos before. The pair on the left was a recent gift from a very special friend. I snatched up the pair on the right at a yarn store that is clearancing out all of their needlework stash - they were 50% off. The pair on the left works great for hardanger; The long skinny blades are great for cutting threads close to the stitched threads. The pair on the right are great for everyday stitching; I like the larger holes for my fingers.
Hope you enjoy this beautiful Sunday and that have time for some stitching today!
