post. These are quite easy to make and are perfect for mailing.
Here I was in a red mood and selected fabrics that I felt coordinated in pairs. I cut out a "6 pack".
Most of these have all flown away across the miles. I sent them as little Thank You surprises to some of my faithful followers. I have said before that I haven't done a blog give-away as that seems to bring lots of non-followers seeking prizes. (I only enter other blog give-aways if I have been and am a faithful follower.) I would much rather send little surprises from time to time to my followers who are with me through thick and thin. I truly appreciate each of you so very much.
One of my thread catcher recipients does not sew and instead told me she put her glue bottle inside as a holder and enjoys it every day sitting on her workspace. Now the ideas are flowing aren't they?
Our weather is terribly cool last night and today. May be some sort of storm brewing. I would welcome rain however our deck wood is all laid out drying in preparation of cutting and staining. Trust me it is a huge job to dismantle this old deck. Mr. C is a trooper and has done all of the hideous dirty and dangerous work. I have been his helper but I really am not much of a help when it comes to the heavy or difficult stuff. This morning I was able to weed while waiting to "catch" boards to haul to the debris pile. We are a really good team and have always been able to work together...whether office, home or whatever else project it is. I feel fortunate that we work well together.
May you each have a glorious weekend and enjoy Summer which will be all too short.
These are perfect little thread catchers! I find myself laying my thread tails on the table next me, now I can make one of these cuties!ReplyDelete
Hi! Your message that I found this morning warmed my heart and made me all mushy. Thank you. I have just gotten home a few minutes ago...and am done with this school year. I am breathing...breathing...breathing. Your organized boxes with colorful compartments, remind me of a candy store!! Your fabric goodness is so...you. Sweet and girly and fun and pretty...and neat and organized!ReplyDelete
I went over to the pattern. What a neat way to create this. Here I was thinking you had put all these different triangles together and it is 1 piece! Now I know I will be making me one! I do like that fabric with the safety pins.ReplyDelete
And I am sooo honored to be one of the recipients of your DARLING thread catcher, I have it right in my drawer by the couch for when I do my hand sewing...The cats are sure going to miss playing with the thread that piles up on my side table LOL! Thank you and you have a great weekend too!ReplyDelete
Sherry, your little thread catchers are just darling! I've never seen anything like these before!ReplyDelete
Oh my. Hope the weather warms up and I hope everything goes well with the deck. We just had to redo ours. It was a huge job. The under carriage was rotten. So glad to put that behind us. now for the other 99 things that need to be done around here. LOL
Have a lovely weekend!
Your thread catchers are a pretty way to keep all the little bits in one place, and have a tidy work space. I've been meaning to make myself one, but so far, I'm just using little baggies!ReplyDelete
Hope the rain stays away until your deck is done. Have a great weekend!
Like Suz I was going to make one of these too, but haven't gotten to it yet. Yours all look so cute together there. I really like all the coordinating reds. They could be useful for so many things.ReplyDelete

What a sweet group of thread catchers. I love all the reds. It looks like a valentine's sewing festival. :-)ReplyDelete
Sherry these are so adorable! What a great idea!

What a fun and creative project, I love it! This is one of the great projects that can fit so many occasions and have so many uses, thanks!
What wonderful thread catchers you've made! I was at a stitching workshop last weekend and the lady next to me had one. I had not seen these before & I'm definitely going to make myself one to carry with me. Lovely post and pictures :)ReplyDelete
Hi Sherry! By chance I found your Blog and have been enjoying my morning coffee reading through it. I absolutely love your little thread catchers! And.... I love how organized you are - WOW want to come over my house and help me get organized?ReplyDelete
Reading the story of how you opened your house to someone you hardly knew was such a treat - it sounds like you made a ture friend and had a great time together. Your book is lovely!
I can't believe I'v missed so many posts here, Sherry! Love the thread catchers and I'm happy to see you posted a link to your instructions.ReplyDelete
