I've gotten more done on Rachel Hyde.
As always, it's slower going than I would like. Those pine trees took forever!
And I'm really not in the mood for rice stitch. I don't mind eyelet as much. But the alphabet is in both. It's looking nice though. I love the colors. It's fun to be stitching something that uses my old green and blue favorites. I still love red, of course, but these are my first loves. lol!
In other news, Nina is having a contest over at her blog. In order to enter, you're supposed to show your scissor collection on your blog. So here I am this morning, running around trying to remember where all my scissors are! I managed to find what I think is most of them, but I know I also have a few preemies and others lying around. Anyway, here is most of my collection.
The Gingher ones I've been trying to get from Shepherd's Bush the last couple of years so I can get the matching scissor fob. But of course I haven't stitched any fobs yet! Oh well. I have a couple of Dovos in there, as well as some scissors from Kelmscott Designs. Thanks, Nina, for the giveaway!
In more news, remember the Freshman Formal that my daughter attended at her college with her boyfriend? Well, she didn't take any pictures, but her roommate did. Of course, the girl child only sent me one of them, and a silly one at that. Sigh.
Oh, and I see that the boy child's efforts to pass the dress on to the boyfriend were all for naught. She's wearing a different dress!!!! I'm not going to mention that to the boy child. lol!
Seems the boyfriend is good at making faces for the camera. Hard to get a serious picture from him!
But the girl child did send me at least one that is a nice one. :D (Obviously, these were taken on a different day.)
Ah, young love!
