My sister was visiting me here in Idaho couple of weeks ago. She lives in Pennsylvania and we don't see each other very often. When I took her over to my studio, she noticed that I was using an old selvage trimming for a lanyard. I like to wear my little snippy scissors around my neck so they are always at hand--no matter where I am in the studio.
Now, what is wrong with this? . . . it functions well.
Hmmm . . . this does look nice.
She graduated from the University of Idaho (the Vandals.) During her visit here to Idaho, she met up with 3 girlfriends from her college days in the 80's. She also visited the campus book store and picked up some U of I shirts to take back with her. She must have felt sorry for me because she bought me this nice little black lanyard with a soft knit webbing . . .
. . . and a retractable extension. I love it!
New Apron. New Lanyard.
My girlfriend stitched this embroidery on this apron for a gift exchange with a group of friends. I just happened to receive it and I love it too!

Oh . . .
When we remodeled the building, we took out all the interior walls and put this old tree in to hold up the beam. It makes a great central location to hang my apron, measuring tapes and scissors. It also makes a great conversation piece.
