RETIREMENT OF A NEEDLE---

This is my cute salt shaker that I 'retire' my pins and sewing/quilting needles in--
and--
this hand quilting needle needed to---
to be retired--
because it's job was finished this afternoon--
looky here--
We are all done--even the binding is all stitched down--
this was a '3 year' ufoPROJECT--so don't say ufo's never get done--
even though I think I finished only about '4' of mine this past year out of upteen million!!!
did you say 'next year will be a better year for finishing some 'projects in waiting'---
I sure hope you are right!!!!

Anybody got any leftover homemade cookies or fudge--
Miss Gracie says she is 'hungry'!!!!!
She says that stuffed mouse is looking 'yummier' every day!!!!!!!
Hugs, Di and that hungry kitty!!!!

  1. That's a clever idea. I put mine in an old plastic prescription bottle, and throw it out when it's full. Yours would be much prettier on the sewing table!

  2. I love your quilt! I received some rotary blades and needles in my stocking, so I immediately changed my blade and machine needle, and put them bot in the blade case. I like your idea for a sharps container.

  3. Congratulations, Di, on finishing my favorite piece of yours! It must make you feel really good to have another UFO completed! I think you are going to have a lot of finishes in 2012 because of your participation in that challenge. Good luck!

    Good idea to store your used needles in such a pretty container.

  5. Lovely, Di! And I think the saltshaker is really cute.
    I think ms Gracie is a good kitty for leaving your decorations alone, our Tiffi is in love with the red decorations and we have to keep a close eye on her!

  6. What a lovely little quilt Di, I just love it.
    What a pretty way to dispose of needles, I use a tiny little jam jar I got on vacation. Hummm, I will have to look around my house for something pretty, thank you for the idea.
    Happy New Year to you.
