I use them for the usual stacks of paper, but also as bag clips, and this particularly pretty set lives in my sewing room. You'll never believe how I use them there.
That's right. They're bindING clips! I got tired of stabbing myself with pins as I attached my binding (I do it all by machine) and got the idea to try this method out. It works like a charm.
I finished up White Wedding tonight. You'll remember I was chosen at random to participate in the Scrap Splat Challenge hosted by Generation Q Magazine. Thomas Knauer provided 42 2" square scraps from his own studio and set us on our merry way with only two rules: 1) use all 42 scraps in some way on the quilt, 2) add only solids. I did a modern interpretation of the very traditional double wedding ring design, then quilted it all with pebbles and here's the lovely finished product:

I'm shooting off the email to the judges, now. Wish me luck!
And just for my sweetheart, who says more pictures of The Kitten need to be on the net, here is my quilting companion.
