Gifties

I have to show off a couple of gifties that I got while on my trip to Indiana. I "found" these last night after a serious hunt. I had packed them securly for the trip home - so securly, I couldn't remember where they were - LOL!
Diane made the sweet black and polka dotted thread catcher with attached pin cushion. I have always wanted one of these and now I have one that is just perfect. It is weighted so that it hangs off the side on a table. The pocket holds all of your thread snippets and the pin cushion lets you park your needle in a jiffy. She also made various scissor fobs for all the retreat ladies to choose from. Each scissor fob was attached to the lovely silver scissors. I got the nice green fob with the butterfly charm attached. Sweet!!

Karen out-did herself by stitching me a sweet scissor fob with my initial. On the back she stitched OOE 2011 (Only One Ewe) and she attached the fob to a pair of hot pink butterfly scissors! I don't consider myself a scissor collector but looks like I have the start to a great looking collection! May have to look for one of those glass scissor frogs that I see so many have.

I'm still busy stitching on the letter "S" so hopefully I'll have a new picture to show you soon.

Have a great weekend everyone!
