It's the classic card organizational method but it works for me.

2  Baby's first tramp stamp? in Needlework: Completed Projects by SkitzoLeezra on: October 22, 2011 04:40:52 PM
Stitched up a pair of "Ruby's bloomers" from Heather Ross Weekend Sewing book and added a tattoo inspired bird to the back for baby's first tramp stamp.

3  Cutesy Crocs in Shoes: Completed Projects by SkitzoLeezra on: October 22, 2011 04:28:32 PM
Crocs - are they so ugly they're cute?  Or so ugly, they should be reserved for non-public wearing?
Slap a plaid ribbon bow and jewelry part on 'em and wear them loud and proud!

4  Super easy cross stitch Christmas ornaments in Needlework: Completed Projects by SkitzoLeezra on: December 05, 2010 06:21:46 PM

Hello Cross Stitchers,
Made a whole mess of tree motif cross stitch ornaments with 2 pieces of aida cloth.  The reverse side is stitched with the year and receiver's name.
Using a running stitch and embroidery floss, the two pieces of fabric were sewn together.  Fiberfill was pushed into the "pillow" before the running stitch was knotted.
Take a look at the different edge treatments: fringed, pinked and blanket stitched.
They were super easy, super economical and super fast.  (Just like ______.) Wink

To respectfully disagree, sometimes scissors (no matter how small) are a problem and sometimes not.  It depends on the level of intelligence of the security officer.  Just yesterday, I was told to return my tiny embroidery scissors to my vehicle after the courthouse X-ray scanner detected them.  Today, my bag included the following tool.   

This is what you stitching travelers (and parents of curious/behavioral deficient children) need.
It is a thread cutting tool disguised as a flower pendant.  There are tiny little sharp metal incisions between each petal. 
PLEASE, for the love of Craftster and your needle sisters don't feel the need to explain the cutting feature to the weak minded security folk.  They hear "cutter" and think "terrorist" no matter how innocuously crafty you may appear and they really hate hearing how you circumvented their thriving scissor confiscation conspiracy. 
Instead, attach the tool/pendant onto a ribbon and cut thread at high altitudes to your heart's delight. 
Available at most craft and fabric stores.

You're welcome.

Had a whole hunk of postage stamps and decoupaged them to a not-so-wonderful table top. 
See my blog for hardly any more detail.

7  Our animals have no faces! in Needlework: Completed Projects by SkitzoLeezra on: August 22, 2010 02:45:06 AM

Not quite as gruesome as the "Dumb and Dumber" situation of headless pets, my stitched doe a deer a female deer, her fawn, and its baby daddy Buck have no faces. 
What started out as laziness became quite desirable in its abstractness. 
And yes, you can remove iron-on transfer markings.
More detail on my blog entry Buck Face!

I use the same system and really, winding those bobbins doesn't take too long, especially if you're watching television.  Once you wind a couple, you barely need to look and before you know it, a box o' floss is waiting for your next project. 

Floss bobbins are also handy color chips!  More than a few times, I've matched a floss bobbin to a large or heavier item not convenient for carrying and used it to color match an item while shopping.
