September 11

I will always remember this date. It's difficult to believe that seven years have passed already. It's as fresh as yesterday in my mind.

Scissors and needle case made with fabric and cross stitched kittens on the front and ribbon ties

This afternoon I finished the scissors/needle case that I had cross stitched here. Even a little finish feels good. This will be a gift for someone special who just celebrated a birthday.

Clothesline Club at my LQS was this morning. Stacey showed so many cute, little projects that Lana had made. The new Kaufman line by Darlene Zimmerman called "Girlfriends" came in, also. It has some really cute, little prints such as lipsticks, shoes and hats. The first photo shows a shoe caddy, cosmetic bag, pillowcase, a holder for your hair curler and a little purse necklace that also holds your thread and scissors. The second picture is a close-up of the little necklace.

New giveaways: Tazzie is celebrating her 500th post and
Colleen is having a 'Fun Fall Giveaway.

I won another giveaway. This one from Molly over at Molly's Place. A large, heavy box arrived packed with fabric scraps, batting, blocks, assorted Thangles, a quilt pin and a book. It was so much fun sorting through it all. Thanks again, Molly

Hi Jeanne,
What a great necklace for your scissors- - what is the length of the strand of beads that holds it? Do you know if there is a set of instructions to make it- I do bead as well as quilt - I think it would be a fun thing to make for friends.
What nice giveaways that you won- Congratulations.
