WOW Monday just flew by just like the summer. I did however want to tell you about one of my favorite tools and that is the Embroidery Broderie Scissors. I have at least 3 or 4 pair of these and I give them as gifts all the time. They are the perfect small pair of scissors to place by your machine or in your sewing kits or bags. They are great for sewing projects, craft projects and yes your embroidery projects. You can find them at your favorite quilt shop or you can get them at one of my favorite shops Missouri Star quilt company. Get a pair or two you will love them.

Today its not a recipe it's a tip. My daughter showed me a video and I had to try it. Guess what it works. Here is how you separate egg yokes from egg whites with an empty water bottle, it's kind of fun too.

Whether quilting or crafting this ruler comes in handy it's the 6 X 24 Ruler by Quilt in a Day ruler. I prefer the 6 X 24 ruler to be more clear to see the fabric and measurements better and this is a great ruler. There are lots of rulers out there and most of them are yellow and sometimes its hard to see the 7/8 measurement. So give this one a try its even on sale.

Pin Pin where did that pin go. I'm sure if you sew or are around anyone that sews you will totally relate to this. Dropping pins or pins falling out of your project is bound to happen. So I have to say my favorite tool today is the magnetic pin holder. If you drop a pin or a few pins you wave your magic pin holder over it and walla it picks it up or better yet finds it. I have a couple of these purple ones and I love them. I did however find a lot of tutorials online how to make them. I tried one but you really need a very strong magnet. I may have to find a stronger magnet and try this cute tutorial even if its just to decorate my sewing room.

Our patriotic holiday is coming up, and so are those potluck family dinners, family reunions and just enjoying the company of family and friends. One of my favorite potluck recipes is the Strawberry Pretzel Salad. The bonus is It gives you a serving fruit. Ok that is how I justify it, and it sure is tasty.
