 I want to share a laugh with you.  Last Saturday the Happy Scrappers met at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  We were socializing and stitching and having a great time.  At one point Adrienne stood and walked toward the ironing board.  I didn't pay any attention until I heard a little cry "Yikes!"  I looked up and heard her mutter in that cute New Zealand accent of hers, “It looks like a bloody Ninja weapon.”  When I went to investigate, I saw this adorable little pin cushion bobbin/scisssors holder plastered on the side of Diana’s machine.

This is a closer look of this delightful little creature.  He may be a little scary at first glance, but what a handy item to have right there on your machine.  I want one and asked the shop owner about it.  She is out of stock now but more of these little guys will be in the shop soon!  I wonder if Adrienne will be getting one too?

That was funny. I'm trying to remember what her follow up comment was. It was equally funny.

I have seen those online in a couple of places. Do you know how they stick to the machine - magnet or sticky substance?
