Do you have any of these? I just love them. I love the weight of them for my scissors...really helpful for keeping the scissors from being lost in my space!

I thought it would be fun to introduce new people I've met on the blogs once a month, so my first new person is:
Doris of A Pause in the Journey had this list some time ago as a fun sort of "test" to play with. I also thought it would be fun by way of an introduction of Doris who is really a wonderful stitcher and a maniac "And They Sinned" SAL stitcher!! Go see her and tell her I sent you, please.

I've visited with Kellan and Jessica today...he wears his poor grammie out! We love the way he laughs and screams when we tickle and toss him on the bed. He loves to try to eat any adult food he sees me or Jessica with ...he says, "Mmmmm" and reaches out his hands. With 6 teeth now, he can chew and loves to hear the sound of crunching on a cracker if we let him bite one! :) He actually sat on the grass today at my house, and wasn't sure he liked that texture...he'd touch the grass, then put his hand back on his lap! LOL

I'm so grateful for friends like you who visit me and leave me happy notes. I'm grateful for my children close and far across the USA. I'm grateful for my 5 little grands, and hope I can see all of them someday soon. And, I'm grateful to have a husband who is loving and kind, crazy and blind to my needlework stash. :]

Love and hugs, Deb

Ooh! I haven't seen those before! I have admired the other Zecca goodies, though :)

Ranae said...

Those are so beautiful. I have never seen them before, but I am going to go look them up, Thanks!!

Cindy F. said...

Wow! Incredible fobs! Thanks for sharing:)

Brigitte said...

Interesting fobs I had never seen before. And it was interesting to read your answers to the questionnaire. You were doing a lot of things in Germany, weren't you?

Cheryl said...

Good to find time to catch up with your blog at last! Enjoyed reading the facts about you :)
Wow, is Kellan at that stage already? Doesnt seem long that long since the birth!!

Carol R said...

The Zecca scissor fobs are gorgeous!

doris said...

Hey, Deb, thanks for introducing me to your friends! That was really nice of you. Of course, I love those fancy fobs. I may have to have one. I noticed that we have some WIPs in common, so you're just as crazy as I am. Thank goodness for all of us crazy girls.

How great to hear such a cheery post, Deb! :D I bet it was great fun, if a bit tiring, with sweet Kellan. Six teeth - Arden still has just the 3. LOL!

Sally said...

Oooh those fobs are gorgeous Deb! I've never seen those before.

Kathy A. said...

Those are just so cool and quirky!! Love them. Interesting list of things. Aren't grandkids the best fun and the most exhausting!!!

Annemarie said...

oooooh, I love the foblike, things! Too cool!

Wow, Deb, you've really made good use of your time, judging from that meme :o)

giulia said...

I'm so glad to see that you keep posting new articles and this is the proof that you are really doing fine and better every day!!
I agree with you: Zecca items are gorgeous. Did you see their laying tools and thread cutter necklaces?
Hugs from Giulia

The fobs are pretty, different and funky! I heard years ago that the purpose of a scissor fob was to protect your scissors when you drop them. The concept being, have a fob that is heavier than you scissors, but soft. That way when you drop your scissors, the heavy fob part hits the floor first with your scissors landing on the cushy fob part, thus saving the point of your scissors. Who knows. I just like the pretty dangly stuff on my scissors. Like stitching scissor bling.
Sounds like little Kellan is growing fast!
Next post on my blog, I will do the list. Mine will be pretty boring!
Take care!

Dear Friends, I hope you read this message... My computer has died!! I'm using my husband's computer at the moment, and hoping to get hooked up with a new one very soon. Until then, I can't add to my blog!! See you on the other side of this issue!! This will also postpone my Needleroll Drawing...sorry... :[

Hugs, Deb
