Scissors & Stuff

Kellan and Grammie Debi before we got into trouble sticking a little boy's hands into ice cream at his first birthday party around Grammie's Club pool. June 7, 2009
Several comments about my new Mermaid Roses scissors: so I have to tell you they are from ABC Stitch Therapy. They have the best selection of scissors IMHO, for those of us who are collectors. They also have Zecca accessories...scissor point protectors, et. al. One of our bloggish friends pictured and talked about a new blue and white scissor out at JoAnns, which I'm on the hunt for asap.


Also wanted to give you this, my conversion for Mary Wigham. This is the DMC to AVAS. Thanks for mentioning it, Cindy.

Hugs to all of you, I appreciate so much your kind thoughts and prayers for Elaine and Jessica. We're all doing well for the moment. You should hear some of Jessica's culture shock stories about Lousiana. Remember she's a New Englander raised in the Boston Area (Wellesley) so the deep South is a foreign as Italy to her!!! LOL
