In the last month, I’ve lost two pair of scissors. One was a limited edition ginger and the other was given to me by a friend and had a great stitched fob on it. I’ve also managed to break another set that I adored and was a special gift from a friend. Both of the lost sets were out on the table next to where I stitch when they disappeared. I’ve looked where I normally keep scissors I’m not using… I’ve looked in the couch cushions and even looked in the areas where the cats like to hang out and sleep all day. They are just gone. 😦
I decided that even though I’m unemployed and basically surviving on weekly unemployment paychecks (I refuse to spend savings unless it’s really important), I found myself at the Silver Needle website and got a little carried away! I ordered 3 pretty sets of scissors when I really don’t need any at all! Nothing fancy or too expensive…but I couldn’t decide between the three I liked so I got all of them. Besides, I have three large projects going right now and each of them really deserve their own set of scissors…. right???
My only saving grace over this is the fact that even though I have all day every day to drive the short hour to the House of Stitches (which happens to have a South Bend Chocolate source right on the way), I haven’t done so since right after I lost my job. This has been my only stash enhancement since early March.
I’m on month two of working non stop on Alpine Seasons. There have been some breaks here and there, but I’m making some good progress… expect an update pic soon!
I have some other possible good news, but I’m superstitious so I’m not going to say anything about it until it’s a sure thing….
Thanks for reading and have a good day!
