My Special Christmas Gift from Ray....

I wanted to share my gorgeous gift that Ray made for me that I mentioned a couple of weeks ago! It started with Vonna coming up with the idea with the framed fabric covered cork board to hang her scissors/fobs on. I LOVE the idea, but didn't really have anywhere to hang one, so, I asked Ray to make a case that could have a glass top that I could lay my scissors/fobs in. And he made it.... and lined it with red velvet and it's so very pretty! I knew he was making it but I didn't get to see it until late Christmas Eve. Isn't it great? I do have more scissors & pretty fobs, but many are kitted up with UFO's & other projects, but you get the idea I'm sure!

Below are pics with & without the glass.....



I love it & that's what counts, right? ;-)

As you can see, I've been working on my blog a bit. I like it with 3 columns, but it took me an hour to get all the html changed. I should have been working but it was Saturday evening... who wants to work on Saturday evening?! ;-)


I also finally stitched last night! Yeah for me! I am listening to a book on CD & hope to finish up a RR by bedtime. If I do, that's it for RR's for me, at least for awhile. I have so many, many projects I want to finish in 2009 & so many more to start.... wish me luck! :-) I also finished my LK Double Flips (the first series) last night with the exception of adding the charms. I'll do that sometime after I finish the RR & post a pic.

Thanks for looking & have a great week ahead! Happy New Year to all, may you have a very happy & blessed 2009!!!

Amy,

It's beautiful! I guessed correctly except I thought it would be for floss storage.

Have a Happy New Year. Maybe in 2009 you could visit my blog.
