Rotary Cutter Hording,Superbowl Trophy Maker,Office/Studio Make Over,Ode to the Tomato Pincushion,Your Color Fix for Today

How many rotary cutters do you own? I really want to know! In my organizing frenzy, I have learned that I own 14 rotary cutters. How ridiculous is that? Thankfully 6 of them will be going to new homes, to new quilters and I will return my rotary cutters after using them to their new designated place in my sewing room!
At the bottom of today's blog post, leave a comment and let me know how many you own!
Do you know who makes the Superbowl trophy? The people behind it?
Well...I do and one of these amazing people is MY DAD
My dad, a silversmith for Tiffany & Co. played an integral part of making the Superbowl trophy for 38 years. Imagine being given a blob of silver and transforming it into a world known symbol for the Superbowl game millions watch every year! My dad is the silver haired man second from the left. One of the great things I got to do was go to Tiffany's every year and hold the Superbowl trophy and get my picture taken with it. Here's a little secret.....the initials of t
his team are secretly (well not so secret now) engraved inside!
Still focusing on the organizing and redoing of my office/studio and I am really pleased how it's turning out. Oh believe has been an eye opener from the beginning. I found out a few things about myself. I "over-collect" things. Things like greeting cards, scissors, rotary cutters, office supplies....well you get the idea. I feel that since I now have a place for everything and knowing what I have, this will avoid mis-spending and over collecting. Finally!!! These pics are just the new things that have happened since my last few postings of pictures of the office-makeover. Keep tuned to my blog...there is still more to do in here...stay tuned!

Click on the scissors and it will take you to a website that has sewing related cabinet knobs just like these scissors!

With all the craze of making pincushions, I wanted to revisit our old friend, the original tomato pincushion. She is still alive and "very" red!
