Saturday and Sunday.....

were two beautiful days here. Lots of sunshine a perfect day to be outdoors. I did do a few little things around the house and then I spent most of yesterday on the patio creating.... fun little scissor fobs. Here are three of my favorites. I call these...
scissor eye candy....they just make me happy. The owl scissors are from Lisa, the middle pair were a treat to myself and the red and blue pair were an anniversary gift from Carl. I love using different scissors for each stitch project....I never know what will strike my fancy. I know lots of stitchers have a scissor addiction....I'm thinking I'm one of them. Besides making fobs yesterday I started this sweet little free stitchie from Lori of Not Forgotten Farm....
and finished it this evening. I plan to make it into a little pillow or door hanger...not quite sure which.....but I'll share when it's all stitched up.
I hope you will visit Lori's blog...you will enjoy, all you need to do is click on her name. Oh, and for the little free stitch you can find it on her April 17th post.
Hugs and enjoy creating...hugs, Linda

Hello dear Linda:-)

It's so good to be back to blogging and visiting! Those scissor fobs are just gorgeous, what a great idea. I so envy anyone who can stitch, I'm afraid all I can do with a needle and thread is hem pants! lol

We're having gorgeous weather here since yesterday, not a cloud in the sky and in the mid 70's. Earlier I was in my shed taking out a lot of my garden ornaments and whatnots. Can't wait to be able to start planting my faerie garden:-) xoxo
