I love my copy of "The Complete Guide to Embroidery Stitches" compiled by Reader's Digest.

Thanks Craftster Chicksters!
Glad you noticed and commented. 
Happy to be out of jury duty and
pleased to get some embroidery done on Uncle Sam's dime,
I am,

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.

I've ordered two different styles from "Jennifer's Jewels" and super happy with her creativity, communication and response time.

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'm a big fan of swear words but especially love your use of "Boozer".  Thinking of copying your idea and including "Lush" and "Gin Head".
Thanks for sharing!

Love your work!
Yes, you're finished with it.  
In my hardly ever humble opinion, I vote no border + framed with barely a border of fabric much like you've cropped the photo.  How about a narrow black frame so the thread colors "pop"?
