Some finishes and stuff

Is this the cutest pincushion or what? My guild buddy, Barb made it for me ! Thanks Barb!!! I love it :)

I finally went over the satin stitches again. What a learning experience this was but I finished it. It's hanging by my sewing area :) I knew I'd be sitting this morning listening for the names of my friends being read from Ground Zero so I made sure that I had plenty of hand sewing.............

I started hand quilting outlines on this panel last year. The kitties are so cute :) I finished it's binding this morning also.

Joansie asked if my basting pins were beads. This is what they look like ..I love the plastic back parts, makes it so much easier to baste quilts.

Lots of pins in my storage tin. I need to get another pack of these backs.

Never forget those killed 7 years ago today.

Those basting pins are so pretty that is why they looked like beads to me...duh!
Love the pincushion and the Halloween square.
Let us never forgot those lost on 9/11. I heard a NY fireman on tv this morning who said that was one of his concerns.
It cracks me up when I hear people say that Bush has kept us safe. Wasn't he president when 9/11 happened?

I have an unused bag of those pins. I may never need them. I'll drop them in the mail to you next week so don't go shopping.

I will never forget 9/11.
