  2. oh, the flower power scissors are so lovely. They would be perfect to cut the beautiful ribbons :-)

  3. The scissors would be great, I’m ashamed to admit I’m currently using kitchen or nail scissors for my crafts :D

  4. It’s weird to be swooning over plain stitch markers, but they’re really hitting the spot for me.

  5. Soooo many lovely things ….. I especially love the Merino Ewe Shawl Stick! And the Flower Power scissors of course!

  6. Oooh love the flower power scissors. As a teenager of the flower power era using them would allow me to reminisce of those heady days!

  7. Groovy flower power scissors for me please! Ah I remember the days… ankhs, Biba, green lipstick, platform shoes, velvet hot pants from Mr. Freedom…bliss.

  8. What goegeous bits and pieces! Love them both but the scissors woud make me smile every time I used them!

  9. I haven’t used ribbon embroidery for many years. The colours of Monahan ribbon are very inspiring. They would look wonderful on some aged ecru linen.

  10. Those gorgeous stitch markers are my favourite. I love that they’re weighty too.. Sounds like they’d be a joy to use!

  11. It’s the nickle stitch markers which has my heart beat quickening… (my sweetie boyfriend already bought me a beautiful pair of your Sajou hare scissors a few years ago for valentines…..yep, he’s a keeper!)

  12. I just love unique boxes and I’m forever losing my stitch markers … so I would love to win that beautiful box of stitch markers

  13. how to choose…those scissors are pretty adorable! but who can’t use more stitch markers? the neon markers are particularly happy :)

  14. The Flower Power scissors would be my choice. Beautiful to use not just with knitting projects but also my tapestry and cross stitch. Thank you.

  15. Love the stitch markers. They are beautifully simple. Also I have no idea where all my stitch markers disappear to.

  16. Haberdashery departments are as tempting as candy shops. Those colorful stitch markers would be a wonderful addition to my existing collection.

    Best wishes from New York!

  17. Leaning towards the Flower Power, but I’d love to know where you got that great display hanger for the ribbons!

    Thank you!

  18. I lost my favourite pair of scissors recently, so a replacement pair would be wonderful. Hoping to come and visit you in the flesh soon.

  19. I love the stitch markers, they look like larger versions of the pretty pins you sometimes get that hold price tags on new clothes.


  20. The Ewe shawl stick looks like a fab way to secure a shawl, without ruining it. I also love the Pine Forest project bag. It makes me think of Moomin designs, which are my absolute favourite!

  21. So difficult to choose from the treasure trove displayed but I have a passion for stitch markers and would love the coloured ones or the tub they are in!
    Thank you

  22. I’ve already been eyeing up the Bonsai scissors, they look perfect enough to take on the move.

  23. I would love to own a pair of Flower Power scissors. They would quite possibly start a scissor collecting passion!

  24. The scissors – I can still remember the ones I was given when I was 8 years old. There’s something about having a special pair of your own scissors. The rooster ones are cute and a useful size. Stitch markers are pretty too.

  25. Oooh has to be the flower power scissors as need a wee sharp pair for the steeking class I am going to next month

  26. Love the flower power scissors. Hope to come and visit your shop soon. Love the Piccadilly shawl and your yarns.

  27. The scissors! I am obsessed with lovely little scissors – in fact, I think that sorting out a bag at the start of a new project and finding the perfect scissors to go in it might be my favourite part of knitting! (or one of them, anyway…
