friday flights

Hubby arrived in Arizona safely. He will be spending the next few days with his brother whom we haven't seen in a few years, so this will be a fun trip for him.

Still trying to track down a pair of the new Gingher Jennifer scissors. None of the Joann's around here seem to have them and it is very frustrating!. It's not like I need another pair of scissors, but I really like these. And I have a great coupon too! Oh well, I'll just keep at it and maybe one of these days they'll show up!

I also made a small trek to Acorns and Threads because I needed a few flosses for an exchange I am doing. I thought the pattern would come in today's mail, but it didn't. I did get my fabric for Santa's Village though so I'll be all set once that pattern arrives.

Some of us in the Friendly Stitcher's group are doing a round robin, and I finished stitching my part on Judy's today. She chose Language of the Flowers from Rosewood Manor as her piece and it is really a beautiful design. This is a shot of the bit I stitched, all except the "P" and the bottom of that vase in the upper corner.

and here is a shot of the piece so far. It is going to look really lovely; I think Judy will be pleased.

I'm off to work on another exchange piece...

Thanks so much for taking the time to visit!


  1. Hope you find your scissors soon, beautiful stitching, hugs.

  2. What a gorgeous design. Have you tried Carol from Garden of Stitches blog for the scissors as she sells them very reasonably too. X

  3. I really like that design. Beautiful colors. It's coming along nicely.
    Hope you find your scissors. I'm a scissor nut too!

  4. The scissor thing with Joanne's makes me crazy. I can never find the scissors, so now I boycott them :)
    Have a great weekend!

  5. What a beautiful piece. Love how it is coming along girl.

  6. I can't find those scissors either, and I too have the 60% off coupon. Ugh. I called every store in a 30 mile radius and NOBODY has them. I'm beginning to think they don't exist. LOL

    That is a really lovely piece. I tend to really like what Rosewood Manor has to offer.

  7. The RR piece your working on is lovely.


  8. What a beautiful flowery piece!

  9. It's so beautiful so far! I love the flowers in the vase!!

  10. How beautiful RR again. I hope you find the scissors soon.
