PS. The beautiful Scissoroo scissors you can see in the pictures have severe corrosion on the handles. I have only ever used the pair once using clean dry hands, otherwise they have been stored in their case. I am so disappointed that they have deteriorated so quickly (I only purchased them in March). Does anyone have any ideas what I can do?

Lots of Goodies
A while back I had lent Margaret a copy of one of my charts so she could stitch a basket band. When Margaret returned it this week, she popped in a little handmade gift as a thank you. She sent this wonderful pear which is so beautifully stitched. I really hadn't expected anything, so it was a wonderful treat. Thank you Margaret, it's absolutely delightful.
I also received a beautifully stitched gift from Joan. I signed up for a PIF from her earlier in the year and she has already stitched them. This is a long pillow with a design from the 'Thank You Sarah Tobias' book. I really love this design and it was the reason I bought the book in the first place. Thank you very much Joan, I really love this pillow as do both of my daughters.
Finally, the last is a chart that I won from Paulette of Plum Street Samplers. She recently had a blog giveaway and I was lucky enough to be able to choose one of her beautiful designs. I decided that I just couldn't go past 'A Handwork's Pace’. Thank you Paulette for this wonderful gift.
