Tuesday was a rainy day, Wednesday followed with wind. At least this wind was not the damaging kind. Nevertheless I kept a close watch on the sky since my newly restored Exedition is parked in my driveway again, smelling of paint, but looking marvelous.
As I prefer to stay indoors on windy days, I began the task of pulling things out of the storage closet under the stairs and deciding if they stay or go. I need to make some room to store all my stash that I keep handy near my sewing and school desks during the remodeling of the family room. In order to do a really good job of decluttering, I need to get really mad and frustrated at having soooo much junk and then I can be ruthless, mostly.
In going through some of my project bags, I found a pair of my much-loved Gingher embroidery scissors that I took to a SAGA meeting months ago when we were sewing shark's teeth pillows. I also found my sewing machine manual! Now this girl has two manuals and with any luck, should always be able to find one of them, hehe.
Embroidery scissors are a wondrous thing to me and I love adding a new pair to my collection now and then. Rachael, not knowing that I have a small collection, recently sent me a new pair for our Gemini Birthday Exchange. So while I had several pairs of my Ginghers all together, I thought I'd capture the moment digitally. More scissors are upstairs near my stitching chair. Good tools are important in any endeavor. Isn't it wonderful that these tools can also be beautiful!
