Last Day of Christmas

I don't have any stitching to show so I'll just show you the last of the Christmas presents.  This has been very high on my wish list for a few years.  What stitcher doesn't dream of the most fabulous scissors ever?  Ones that have been handmade in France by a very skilled tradesman?  When we redid the bathroom a few years ago, I would say that I have the most beautiful sink in the world.  Now I can say that I have the most beautiful scissors in the world.  They are named after the tradesman's wife, Mirielle.
They come in a wooden case:
I know one designer that keeps her fancy scissors in a display case and looks at them from time to time.  I'm not going to do that.  I am going to use mine.  They feel very light and delicate.  When I cut pearl cotton  near the tip of the scissors I can feel them bend.  That's how delicate they are.  DH spoiled me very much this Christmas.  He'll have a hard time topping himself.
I got the missing canvas for the Dolci Bead kit in the mail yesterday.  I want to try out the canvas and see if I like it as much as the linen canvas I have been using.  I've been working on finishing the class project.  Handwork takes forever.
The next lesson for Cabinet of Curiositites comes out on Tuesday.  I really should work on the velvet stitch scissors case from the last lesson.
