Kathy, I have a stack to take to the library :) The ones that went to the recycling bin are ones I had cut stuff out of to keep. i didn't realize Goodwill would take magazines. I have a box of books in the car to drop off today, as well as 2 boxes of fabrics & supplies.

I love scissors.  My son brought me at one of those warehouse stores that have memberships a pack of 3 titanium ones for general cutting.  I was very excited.  He knows how I am about papers scissors and my sewing scissors.

I got a lot of my mom's crafting supplies when she passed away a few years ago. Last night in a little fabric basket of hers I found...2 small pair of paper scissors, 3 pair of embroidery scissors (each with a different color handles & each with a different type point), 2 seam gauges, several ink pens, and a ziplock bag of colored ink pens! I also found six large rolls of elastic that someone had given me...3 white & 3 black. My daughter says, see if so & so wants them, she is a packrat and then they are her problem, not ours, lol. I am delivering all six rolls to the woman this evening after work!

Oh, you girls make me feel better. I have done everything talked about here, in one way or another, or a variation. Makes me wonder about myself so it is good to know I may be more normal than I think sometimes.

I don't forget what I have - I just realize I have more than one because I bought a second...or a third when I couldn't find the first! Somewhere I have a HUGE stash of Topstitch needles.

I don't stay active because I am on other sites but I am going to start reading more. I haven't even been doing that.

I find it fun to reconnect with "lost" tools and other supplies.  Oh, I have one of these?
