Ooooh they have arrived!! ... The most beautiful embroidery scissors!
Yesterday after I had started to stitch, there was a knock on the door and stood before me was the postman.
I knew what I was signing for and with such excitement I gladly took my parcel inside and tried to be sedate in the opening of it ( in truth I was like a child opening presents on Christmas day!) The stunning embroidery scissors and old fashioned pins have arrived from Sajou in France.
They are so beautiful and of course I could not wait to try my 'S' scissors out. In the parcel were two gifts as well, a mouse mat shaped like a cotton reel end and a free cross stitch pattern of all the scissors that they make......... I think I may stitch my ones and make a little case for them with the pattern on the front.
I took my scissors to my sewing room and what a pleasure they are, not only a thing of pure beauty but useful and very very sharp and easy to handle.
They are very well looked after and a prized possession of mine and another reason to rush off to my stitching! not that I need any more reason than I love what I do....
As I think I told you, I would love to go to Versailles this year for a long weekend and having discussed it with my husband I can inform you that we will indeed be going later in the year for a long weekend. I will be able to wander the palace and wonder at the tapestries and painting and we will hire bicycles to ride around the vast grounds that is Versailles. In addition right next door to the palace is the showroom and shop of Sajou so I will be in saving hard to be able to get some wonderful goodies in there. I am excited to be going as we are not going to New England until next year, our friends are visiting us so we can show them some of our wonderful sights on the South Coast of England and the Jurassic coastline....
