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...

Beautiful and what a nice hubby, too. My mom has huge sewing scissors that were my great-grandmother's and pinking shears, too. Good ones can last forever.

Oh, you will love your Gingher pinking shears. They are well worth the money and even better at half off! I've had mine for over 30 years nows. Stay cozy in your winter wonderland and Happy Sewing!
