Yesterday was a great mail day. I received a package from 1804 Primitives, who I have ordered from before. She has awesome goodies. I received some prim candy canes and German glass glitter which I needed desperately.


I also received a package from the Jan Patek store. I had ordered the 1st Friday freebie Scrap Bag and Petit Four and a finishing pack for the Cozy Cabins table runner. I ironed the scrap bag so I could see the fabrics better.


I cannot believe I forgot to mention this. I am very excited about it. When we were in Maryland a couple weeks ago my mother-in-law gave me these great vintage scissors that have been in her family forever.


They are vintage D. Peres Solingen scissors with mother of pearl handles. D Peres Solingen scissors are German made. I do not know how old this particular pair is but they appear very old but in good shape. One pair is 5 3/4” and the smaller pair is 3 3/4” long.  She wants me to get them cleaned up and use them in my sewing basket. I will definitely do this when I can. Wicked cool!!!!

I listed some items on my selling blog yesterday, some pin cushions and a pillow tuck.


Well, that is it for now. Back to work. I goofed off all day yesterday on the computer and did not get much done so I have to make up for it.

Have a great day and don’t forget to find some stitching time!!
