Pumpkins and Pretty Scissors

Horrified by Just Nan (Whimzi Series)

Stitched on 32 count Summer Khaki Belfast linen
with the called for DMC threads.

I was hoping to have this done in time for Halloween but I was a day late. I finished it up yesterday and popped it in the frame last night. Decided to keep it on display for a bit longer - it is autumn after all :)

I'd seen the pretty Roberta Gingher scissors on a few blogs recently and figured I would add a pair to my collection. The Bianca pair just happened to fall into the shopping cart at the same time :) I ordered them through Mike & Carol's Internet Store a week ago and they arrived on Wednesday - four days to get here!! Brilliant service and given that I have a "thing" for scissors I will definitely purchase through them again.

Love your JN finish and the scissors are awesome, I love Gingher's. Your snowflake ornie and the jingle ornie is beautiful. I hope to get jingle done tonite.
