My birthday gifts from a friend....

Thought I would share my birthday gifts from my quilting friend at home! Doesn't take much to make me happy! (Oh and yes you see my "mess" on my sewing table!) Lynn made the little scissors case out of wool.

And inside the little scissors case.... Brand new WONDERFUL Dovo scissors! I've wanted a really good pair of little scissors forever, and then Patti talked about how wonderful the Dovo scissors were and I had hoped maybe I would find some down at Paducah this year to treat myself. Well, when Lynn and I went shopping 2 weeks ago, the one shop we stopped at had them! And I fell in LOVE with this pair. I love the just a bit of design, but not gaudy. Aren't they just the prettiest little things? And oh baby are they sharp! Now I know why Patti talked about them! They have tons of designs, but this pair is the one that screamed at me.

Oh man! I know you've been saying that the miniature blocks are tiny, but it didn't hit me just HOW tiny they are, until I saw the 9-patches in those pictures. Smaller than the spool of thread! :O

I love the little scissors. I am afraid I have a bit of a scissors fetish. I have to curb myself sharply when I see a different looking pair.

I am so hooked on Dovo scissors now. I think I have 3 or 4 pair. They put our Ginghers to shame - wouldn't you agree? What a nice gift from Lynn!

I too was intrigued by the little nine patches peeking from the wings in the birthday gift photo. The smaller the better, how fun!
