Looky, Looky, Looky!!!

Check out these beauties:

Aren't they just lovely?!?! Pat, my sewing student, bought these for me. This was the last day of our first 5-week session. She remembered how much I liked her Gingher scissors that she inherited from her MIL and I was raving about my Gingher No. 5's. Today we had our lesson and she invited me over for lunch as well. After lunch she gave me this present. That was such a thoughtful gesture and VERY much appreciated. This pair is the No. 8 and 4 size.

We're taking a week off and starting up again in two weeks. She has learned a lot in these 5 weeks and I told her to think about projects she wants to do for the next 5-week session. She already has the Textile Studio Basic Dress picked out. We'll do the sleeveless one since she wears this style often during the summer. We'll do a muslin/alter the pattern, then work on this dress in a knit of her choice.

Going back to those scissors...and wiping the drool off my face ;) ! I can't wait to use them!!
