I did have one purchase in February and I checked with Mel whether it needed to be included in my report ~ I was advised that it didn't.  

I found these while away with my DH ~ he was working I was wandering.  I dropped him at his client's offices and I visited Cirencester while I waited for him.  
There was a small antiques fair on in a hall I passed ~ well it would have been rude not to call in ~ and I found these beautiful scissors.  They are detailed as 19 century, have no cutting power whatsoever but I just thought they were gorgeous so I treated myself.  They are marked J Rodgers and Sons who were a Sheffield maker ~ I still need to do more research to find my scissors.

Until next month

Don't you just love the way blogger decides for itself to make some of your post in a different font!
I have tried to change this but my usual font does not appear in the list! Grrr

Gorgeous scissors.

Oh no that's not good about the exchange pieces.

Well done on your SFS. I might fail the first 6 months! I will have to see but I signed for the Shepherd's Fold. Beverley at Fobbles said I could get one a month, or whatever suited me, until I caught up so I might still be OK!
