12 Days of Needful Things…Day 2

Day 2- Needful Things-   Re-claimed Seam Rippers

I fell in love with a gifted seam ripper I received from a quilting friend.  When everyone raved at how awesome they were I thought they would be perfect for our Needful Things.  Because let’s face it, seam rippers are needful.  Ripping is much more enjoyable with a pretty ripper.

Now to find someone to make them for me.  I have this uncanny ability to come up with something for my family member “to do”.  My new brother-in-law, Doug is a concrete finisher for CRMeyer.  He usually works out of state on a big job, long term, but right now he is being shuffled to smaller jobs here and there.  He has a big beautiful shop so I asked him if he could make them for us!  So for the last two months, we have been scouring the antique shop and thrift stores for chubby knife handles.  You are doing us all a big service keeping Doug busy making ripppers!

We have a large selection but not many of one kind.  So we have put them into 3 categories.  Ornate Silver                           Unornate                                   GoldReclaimed Seam ripper from Primitive Gatherings

Ornate SilverReclaimed Seam RipperReclaimed Seam rippers from Primitive GatheringsReclaimed Seam rippers from Primitive Gatherings

Unornate-(not so busy) Reclaimed Seam rippers from Primitive Gatherings

Reclaimed Seam rippers from Primitive Gatherings Gold.

Reclaimed Seam rippers from Primitive Gatherings

These will make perfect gifts for your sewing friends and for yourself.  We will randomly pick it and put it in your order.  I am sure you can understand for obvious reasons why we cannot let you pick. So we appreciate your understanding

    I want my family to be together for Christmas. With the help of the snow today we just might be able to have an outdoor sledding party this weekend. I loved the red and white bed turning yesterday. So festive.

    Not much I want other than to see my three grand girls and give them a hug and kisses and for this pandemic to be over. Guess I made two wishes but then if I wish for this pandemic to be over I’ll get with number two too. Merry Christmas

    OMG! I always feel bad when I go to art shows and see old silver ware turned into jewelry, and hope nobody ever does that to my precious silver from my Grandmother. But a seam ripper might be worth the sacrifice. Hmmmmm. That would motivate me to be more careful about “losing” them, too.

    I already got my Christmas wish…my husband’s 3 year cancer CT scan came back clear! Everything else could go away and I’d still be happy because of that. If I wanted to get greedy, I would love to have “time” to do more sewing/stitching projects…or even win one of your give away prizes. I would settle for a new pair of ‘knock around’ shoes though. Merry Christmas!

    I saw these on one of your previous posts and loved them. Perfect gift for a sewer/stitcher. I always say a sharp seam ripper is key. I buy them often as I seem to lose them somewhere. Would love to have one of these. Too late for Christmas gift but would be great birthday gift. Will hint loudly and often that I would like one.

    This kind of feels like the Miss Universe question: “What is your one wish?” and the stock answer, “World Peace!”

    But seriously, the immediacy of the vaccine, who’d ever wish for two inoculations? Me! And 70% of the citizens of this country. That’s the one thing I want that can’t come soon enough. And a more normal life in 2021.

    Nothing else seems that important. Delayed packages? No big deal. Not seeing you family for ten months, unconscionable. It won’t be long now…

    (Love the seam rippers! If I knew how to send you a photo I would show you the beautiful little vase I bought, made from a knife handle. So lovely, I bought three!)

    My Santa list also includes this pandemic moving towards a manageable state that we can perhaps again see family members and friends as well as for a world where we all have a grateful heart to each other.

    For the seam rippers, these are gorgeous. I have looked for some on Etsy in the past as this was on a wish list. I love antiques and these would be perfect for my collection. I love vintage/antiques as it tells a story in a way of a period of time. Just like a quilt can share a story of a person’s life. This leads to the bed turning. That was amazing. I was able to view last evening (on the You Tube! 🙂 ). i find it inspiring and gives me ideas of where I may want to take a future project or look for my own quilt for my antique collection. Keep the videos coming as you can as I look forward to seeing the projects we may have an opportunity to participate in, the works of art and the stories both personal and about the business. We all need those connections right now.

    Thank you for everything in 2020. This group has been my virtual quilt guild and I hope in 2021 these new ways of thinking can continue.

I have more quilting projects to do and with the boxes from PG coming in the mail next year I will have many more to do. I am planning a quilt for everyone in the family next year so I will be busy finishing up ufo’s and new project also.

    I’m really missing my extended family and friends this year, so my wish for Christmas is for this pandemic to be gone so we can meet with friends and family, go out to dinner and to hug my loved ones again. I love the vintage seam rippers and last year I started seeing them in California. I missed the bed turning yesterday but will go watch after I order a ripper. Merry Christmas to all and wishes for a Happy and Healthy 2021

    The rippers are nice. Watched Bed Turning. O f course loved all the red and white quilts. Especially liked the first one, the Irish Chain Variation. My wish from Santa is that my niece who is Special Needs and having a very hard time during this pandemic, is that she would find some peace and joy during this time, as it is very hard for her to fully understand and comprehend, why she can’t see me as much, since I am isolated due to my heart condition.

    What do I want for Christmas this year, I have a few very big asks… I am wishing for a healing for a friend who was recently diagnosed with breast cancer, I also would like to see a healing for our country and the world – we have all been through so much in 2020. It has been a year of chaos, distress and illness. I
    Pray we are all granted a reprieve and that we have a calmer, more peaceful and prosperous 2021.

    Merry Christmas to all the PG crew and to you and yours Lisa. Thanks for all you give to us Lady! You may be responsible for some of us retaining our sanity in 2020… ❤️😘🎄

    The seam rippers are so unique! I love the creative ways people come up with to repurpose items. What I’d really would like to receive from Santa is getting to visit my family. I haven’t seen my mom or the rest of my family since last Christmas. My husband & I are staying home this year. Now if Ohio would be having a heat wave on Christmas, we’d think about going home & celebrating outside.

    Lovely seam rippers! I would ask Santa to take all of my quilt tops to his quilting elves so they would quilt them on their North Pole longarm, and then return them back to me for binding. More importantly, I would wish for peace and relief in these covid times. Thanks for your generous giveaways! They keep the Christmas spirit alive!

    These seam rippers are gorgeous! What a great idea!!! I plan to watch the Red and White quilt turning video tonight as a reward for all gifts being wrapped, cards mailed and baking complete (except for the peppermint cheesecake I’m making tomorrow to have on Christmas. I’ve been doing a good job of being Santa to myself since COVID hit. Like so many of the other comments, my biggest Christmas wish is to be with family again. My mother-in-law is in a nursing home. Praying she stays strong until both doses of the vaccine are administered and we can see her in person. My biggest wish is to see my 5 grandkids without needing to be socially distant. We’ve been grateful for window visits and a few socially distant backyard visits this summer, but being able to give them hugs, cuddle and read stories on the couch, etc. will be awesome. I’ll pray for the vaccines to be successful in controlling the virus so this Christmas wish can come true. Merry Christmas to you and your family Lisa. You have done an amazing job pivoting during this pandemic. Wishing you a happy, healthy, prosperous New Year!

    Those rippers are awesome! All I really want from Santa is to be able to spend Christmas with my kids. I’ve been staying home for weeks to avoid any possible exposure to the virus. So I’ve been getting lots of stitching done, and did considerable damage shopping for myself at PG!

    I’ve been asking Santa for the Twilight Garden BOM kit for weeks now. He (my husband) told me yesterday I better get it ordered so I won’t get behind! Yay!!!! I was so so excited!!! And He loves that it will be the gift that keeps giving and making me happy for 15 months!!!

    The seam rippers are beautiful! Loved watching those red/white quilts turning down off your bed. Such beautiful quilts! I am hoping Santa brings me a joyous day filled with hubby, three sons, sweet daughter-in-law and twin grandsons. We have all been keeping ourselves healthy so we can be together this Christmas. Having a son and daughter in law that are teachers with in- person learning, so far this year, has kept them in and out of quarantine when students or staff has been confirmed with the virus. Right now all are healthy and we pray it stays that way! We plan to visit my 95 yr. old Mom outside her window over the phone as well. Merry Christmas everyone!

    I must be strange but I don’t need or want any gifts. I’m pretty content. I wish everyone a safe,healthy holiday. This has been a hard year- lost my brother suddenly last January- as well as the nationwide house arrest. So lucky to have my stitching, reading and the internet for show and tells and all the projects shared. Looking forward to a new year. Merry Christmas everyone! Thanks for sharing!

    I got my Christmas wish in the form of palliative care hospice. Since the end of February, we’ve only seen my 95- year-old father-in-law twice in an outdoor setting. No inside visits so we figured when we saw him the 1st part of October that would be it for awhile since he lives in an assisted living facility. Recently he was enrolled in a palliative care hospice program. As sad as that sounds, although it’s not end of life hospice yet, there is a silver lining. We now get to see him, inside his apartment for an hour a day. We live 9 hours from him and are spending Christmas at a Hampton Inn so we can see him an hour each day. Added bonus is we’ll also see our son and DIL and my husband’s sister. And yes, we will quarantine for 2 weeks when we get back to Copper Harbor. Looking forward to sewing as non-stop as I can for those 2 weeks!!!
    Thank you for the 12 Days of Needful Things, Lisa!! Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas!!!

    I didn’t ask Santa for anything this year. It’s been a very hard year for us, like for most everyone else. But I have been so blessed to have friends and neighbors bring me alteration work and face mask requests that they need; and that has been such an unexpected blessing. Staying busy and constant prayer has been my mantra. At this point, I just feel so very blessed and grateful just to be alive, and to know that even though we cannot be together with the ones we love,; we can be truly appreciative that they are in our lives. Like everyone else, my wish is that everyone stays safe and well, that this pandemic will end soon, and that 2021 will be a better year for all of us. Season’s Greetings to you and those you love.

    Hmmm that’s always a hard one for me. I love gifting my family members and finding just the right gift. I listen all year for clues and jump at the chance to get it right! So when I’m asked what I want I know I have pretty much what I need, tons of quilting stuff and other crafts items. Enough jewerly after almost 40 years of marriage. New TV? I like the one we have. Furniture? Probably, but who do you ask for that from? I guess I would like what the giver would like me to have. Oh and maybe a puppy!
