Welcome home, Audrey! Welcome home!


Ohhhhhhhhhhh my goodness!!! They're here, they're really here! It was so hard not to tackle the mailman today when I saw him coming with my package! These are the Audrey Gingher scissors that came in a set -- I believe they are from 2003. The first picture is just of them in the box, and the second picture is a close-up so you can see the floral design better.
Both the Audrey 8" shears and the Audrey 4" embroidery scissors are at home with the rest of my Gingher collection. This is a set of scissors I thought I'd never have so I'm just tickled pink to have them! Woo hoo!!!
No real stitching news to report...my time this week has pretty much been spent doing unimportant things like taxes. I hope to have my priorities straight soon (LOL) and get back to stitching. I will be out of town and away from work (woo hoo!) all week next week so surely I'll be able to stitch then. Hopefully a lot!
Meanwhile, thanks for looking and commenting. I enjoy everyone else's blogs, too, and I do try to comment so you know I've been there. Happy stitching! :-)))

Nice design on your newest scissors, and I like that they're a matched set. Very elegant!

Had to laugh at your statement about getting your priorities straight. Too funny!
