More beautiful mail

This is what I received yesterday from Lindsay as part of this month's exchange on Exchange Heaven, a wonderful scissor fob and a pair of stork scissors. I love the colour and I am hoping this will mean I no longer keep losing my scissors. Thank you so much Lindsay.

I did make progress on the mail art envelope. The address has been stitched and it has been pinned to the fabric that will be the lining. The boys were using the plug I usually use for the sewing machine and I decided to be kind and let them finish what they were doing.

Instead, I started on Gina's teapot for the RR on Stitchin Fingers. Today I need to finish the spout, handle and lid. Maybe, I'll manage two finishes this weekend.

Teh fob is beautiful. I have not lost my scissors once since I attached the fob Chris sent me...handy things indeed.
Glad you have managed to get back to stitching..looking forward to seeing the teapot! I have seen lots of mail art lately but have never worked out how it is done so no pressure, but am looking forward to seeing yours!
