Gifts from friends

I have been the fortunate recipient lately of some beautiful gifts from some very good friends.
 Bonnie made this lovely blue scissor fob for me. I was so tickled that I immediately had to go to the shop and find myself a pair of blue scissors to do it justice!
Bernie gave me the scissor frog for displaying my scissors. Don't they look wonderful in it?

Fran and I happened to be out for dinner with 20 of our closest friends recently when I saw a set of dessert tongs just like this. I had not seen anything like it before and was very taken with it. Fran decided I should have a set of tongs for myself and here they are. Aren't they beautiful?

Thank you to my dear friends  for always thinking of me and giving me such beautiful  gifts. I am humbled and honoured and very proud to have such generous, kind  people in my life.

At last I have finished the French Sampler from Jardin Prive. It only took 6 months longer than the SAL was set up for! It is stitched on 40 ct Shadowbook linen with GAST threads.

And  here is my most recent progress on "White Lilies on Red" from Mystic stitch.
