My blogging posts and photos are part of me . I think of this as a scrapbook of my life. The names have not been changed.. they are real people who have crossed my path along my journey. Some I know intimately, my family and friends. If their names are mentioned it's a sure sign they are special to me and I love them dearly...come along see for yourself, perhaps you know some of them too..

My very first pair

All I wanted for Christmas was a pair of Gingher pinking shears.. Really, That's it....well I'd like a new bathrobe too...and a pair of warm slippers (hint) or maybe even a gift card for Jo Anns or Michael's would be appreciated!

I have never had such a nice pair in all my years sewing. I told my husband he could get those for me.. Well he has no idea what I am talking about, and he really doesnt want to be in a fabric store. I know he would feel differently if we were in a hardware store. Today, while we were out looking for "guy appropriate things" like de-icer for the driveway. I drug him once more to JoAnns and he actually came in the store to see what I wanted him to get me. First I had to intice him to see that they were 50% off on the ad today. Like a man in a hurry to leave, he looked at the display of ALL those brands of scissors and picked up a blue pair that were nice looking with padded handles for only $12.99. "You want a $45 dollar pair of SCISSORS?" This is where I reminded him 1/2 off....and without pouting and not wanting to look snobby ...and ungrateful, still thinking, I really wanted Ginhers, when he smiled & said "go ahead get the ones you want" So here they are.. I plan to start cutting today as I lounge around watching the snow fall. I have yards of fabric to play with so I may be here at the cutting counter awhile. I promised to polish them after I use them & tuck them into my Christmas Stocking......

If you are outside today, where ever you live... bundle up and stay warm.. it's Winter out there...
