Where are my scissors?

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!

  1. You must post scissor porn photos when they arrive for scissor-sluts like me! I will never confess how many I own. Let’s just say I pass double digits eons ago! lol. You do realize that once your new scissors arrive you will find the lost ones. It’s Murphy’s Law.

  2. As I told you earlier, and as Cheryl has confirmed – once your new scissors arrive, your lost ones will show up. Keeping my fingers crossed that you find them!

    Can’t wait to hear your news!

  3. sorry to hear such lovely-sounding scissors have gone on a little vacation, and I don’t blame you at all for buying some new ones. A girl can never have too many scissors…

    Happy stitching.

  4. You know the scissors you lost will show up just as you receive the ones you ordered! 😉 Course one never can have too many scissors. Looking forward to hearing about your good news and seeing your Alpine progress.

  5. Watching your progress really makes me want to find this chart.. it’s gorgeous! I can’t wait to hear your news too!
