but sewing related items are my definite weakness ~
and I know I'm in Goode Company!
yesterday, whilst out running errands, I stopped in our local antiques mall...
no plans, no directives as what to look for, just a short trip through the booths
would be all I needed for a quick 'fix'.
now Joan & Flea both collect them too, so I thought, well why not me too.
I am limiting myself to only adding black darners to my collection,
as to not tempt myself into
|ready to stitch ~|
perfect. I need more scissors, right?
but these are not your 'average' scissors....
but the pair on the right?..........
I couldn't pass them up...they are Solingen scissors,
made in Germany & as sharp as well, scissors....
have you EVER seen stork scissors this big before?
(me neither, had to have them)
|biggest stork scissors I've ever seen.|
(will share pics of that later)
and below, you can see the beginning-stitches of one of four new cross stitch designs-to-come ~
all will be stitched onto my own hand dyed
Old Farmhouse Linen
and all four will be available in kit OR pattern form!
|osage oranges, black darners & scissors ~ oh my!|
can you guess what this will become?
