It is almost weekend and I can't believe how fast another week has past. I am still working on hand quilting a UFO and it is taking longer than I had anticipated. I do only have to more rounds to go and I can sew the binding on. This time when I say that I hope to have a finish to share with you next week, I can really mean it.
I am also working on all the blocks of my last border to my own medallion quilt as you can see some here on my antique embroidery table. But look just a little closer...
A few weeks ago, I received a recent eBay win in the mail. I got this wonderful flower frog. It is a perfect and fun way to display some of my antique and reproduction scissor collection. I had them sitting in my wall cupboard up to now and even with the glass shelves, they just did not show up well. A flower frog was the answer. It is fun to use old items for a new function. Do you have any fun ideas for using vintage things?
I hope you all have a creative weekend. Summer is a great time to sit in the garden with your stitching or quilting.

What a lovely way to display/keep your scissors.
Okay - now I HAVE to have a flower frog for my scissors! that is just such a wonderful idea!
What a clever idea! I love it!
Well Miss Heidi, I think you do not need any more sissors. Holy cow. I can't believe they don't all have fobs hanging from them. LOL. Good luck on your border, it will be quilt night again before you know it.
Love you, Mom
I spotted that right away when I saw the photo - wonderful idea, and what a great collection of snippers you have! Seeing your beautiful little table and work, makes me want to pick up my hand piecing again!
But I guess we'll save that for next week when we reveal our UFO's!
You are a clever girl! this is lovely.
What a great way to display your scissors Heidi,looks like you've got some lovely ones there.
Heidi, I always enjoy your posts so much, and your pictures are always inspiring. I've never heard of this froggy thing, but it looks amazing, with your scissor collection in it!
