Thanks for all your get well -wishes! I'm definitely getting better, but the cough is still alive and kicking. I'll spare you from the details.
I've been making Christmas presents and I need to keep them secret for a few days more. I'll blog about some of them later, so that there's still something handmade in this blog every once in a while. I got my gocco and made my first prints, but I don't have proper pictures yet. This seems to be a "come back later" blog entry. In addition to that, there's something I want to show you: My scissors! (Well, the ones on top right are my husbands.)
I was inspired by all the spoons over at Skinny laMinx's blog, and of course also by her print Borrowed spoons. We have spoons too, but I like scissors. A lot. I think I could never have too many scissors. I don't know why would I need any more, but cutting is fun = new scissors are fun. Most of you will recognize that Fiskars orange, but also the teal and red ones are made by Fiskars. The red ones are for left handed. It took almost a decade to convince my Mom about it. Those were my first proper scissors, and they were just fine even though I'm right handed. The black ones are teflon coated. That's nice. I don't know if there's any difference to the similar non-coated scissors when it comes to cutting, but knowing that the teflon is there makes me feel better. What a scissor snob!
Tomorrow we're off to my home home, which is my parents' house, and from there we'll go to my husband's parents. We won't be back to Turku until next year. I'll keep updating even though I'm on the road. I don't want you to feel abandoned any more than you already feel.
