Scissors.


I have just been getting a birthday gift ready to post to my only sister. She is quite difficult to buy for as she has everything she wants / needs. Last Friday at our Patchwork Group there was a display of all the many different scissors available. These are for embroidery, which she does, so thought she might like some beautiful scissors. ( these have stainless steel slightly curved blades ) I also included the latest copy of Quilting Arts magazine with lots of inspiration in it.
Yesterday New Zealand had awful weather. Snow in the South Island ( hope you are keeping warm Shirley in Oamaru ); storms with rain and high winds everywhere else. We lost internet connection first and then had about 8 power outages during the day and evening. Many rural places are still without power. It's best to keep away from the computer when that is going on as I hate to lose what I have written on places like blogger part way through.Today the weather is much improved here; just showers and some weak sun. I need to get out and take a walk, as I have been sitting at the computer doing the Orchard GST return on Banklink . I nearly got blown right away yesterday while walking. Not much sewing happening...tomorrow perhaps.

So glad all your kiwi were picked before all the weather happened!

What pretty scissors - it's really hot (for us) here in the UK.

Very pretty scissors - and there'd be no chance of anyone in the house borrowing those and wrecking them cutting paper with them - may have to investigate - Fiona's right it has been very hot and humid here although we may be in for some showers and a bit less heat over the next few days but no snow - thank goodness - I do keep forgetting though that this is your winter :o)

Actually Oamaru missed all that snow! It was Timaru that was hit hard, while we just had some rain and a bit of wind.
