The 'fruits' of my labor this past weekend... the next of the LHN thread packs 'Plums'. This was appropriate as we again went berry picking on Saturday and were given a small container of plums by the farmer. His plums are ripe three weeks earlier than normal and he has too many. He told me I could take them as a treat. Funny, I was already nearing the end of stitching this design too. I will once again be finishing this design as a pinkeep which I hope to share with you in the coming days.

The pretty scissors were a find while I was in the Alsace in France this last May on vacation. I really love this pair and was happy to add it to my collection.

Oh, I love the plum design, such PRETTY colors! I know you will finish it into another fantastic pinkeep! I am not a plum eater for some reason, maybe too many as a kid...our neighbors had a tree! I adore the cup and the scissors, too! I have never even seen scissors like this, I must shop in the wrong places!!!

Your stitched Plums is beautiful! This is really a pretty design, and it is filled with beautiful colors. Is the fabric in the photo your backing fabric?

I love your new scissors - very elegant and unique.

Me three....I love Plums! Your stitching is so lovely and perfect. Also good to hear that your friend Sonja is doing well. The graphic brought a tear to my eye.
