A few days back, I got an email from Darlene (Quilting Daze) asking if I had received anything in the mail…If you read Darlene’s blog then you know that a couple of weeks back she sent out GORGEOUS hand made scissor fobs to 29 blogging friends!! My mail is probably the slowest on the continent!!…so no I hadn’t received anything…:o(
Well yesterday…I GOT MAIL!!…THANK YOU so much, Darlene!! Isn’t it gorgeous? And to know that you made it makes it all the more special! I placed it on my pumpkin mat so that everyone could see the exact colour of the beads…kind of a Fall peachy-orange!! Just lovely!! See how they catch the Fall light!
Let’s zoom in for a close-up….
…see the top silver bead…it has ‘Made for you’…stamped on it!! SEW darn sweet!
Well I am going to hang this gorgeous fob off my scissor handle with pride…but first I need new scissors that are worthy of such a fob! Not just any old scissors with do!! I need a good but pretty pair of scissors and they are SEW are hard to find…you know the kind that you can ONLY find at a Quilt Show……WHAT’S THAT YOU SAY?…Oh.. there’s a Quilt Show in Tsawwassen THIS WEEKEND?.. hosted by the Boundary Bay Quilters Guild…? THIS WEEDEND you say?? Well…maybe I will have to gather up a few friends and go…they just might be selling scissors worthy of such a fob…:O) (Hey it worked on my husband…OK OK…SEW you’re on to me!!)
Thanks again, Darlene!! You have been a GREAT friend!! I still remember my VERY FIRST blog post…and how I screamed out that someone had actually left a comment!!!. Yes it was Darlene!! She left this comment…”Welcome to the Land of Blog - I know you're going to enjoy this journey. :-) “…Well…how right you were!! I am loving my blogging journey…and it’s mainly thanks to blogging friends like YOU!! So thank you Darlene…and to all my blogging friends…out there…THANK YOU…and keep those comments coming! Although now when I scream “SOMEONE’S LEFT A COMMENT!” my husband no longer comes running…what’s with that?
Have a wicked Wednesday and Happy Quilting!~P
