Raise your hand if you didn't do any writing for your blog this weekend. Yeah me neither. I ended up only being home long enough to watch one TV show about fancy cakes, watch one movie with friends, and sleep. I did manage to dig something up for the Monday post though :)
Remember all that thread I got from my grandma's house? I posted about it here if you don't. Did you wonder what in the world I was going to do with all of them, especially since they are so old and brittle, that they aren't actually useful for sewing? Well, I sent a gob of them to my sister, and she reported that my niece is now using them for blocks, but since I don't have a little girl (or boy) of my own, I had to think of something else. For my house, I wanted to throw together a quick and easy project to display some of the spools. I don't know if you can even really call it a project actually. I'll let you be the judge.
Here is what I "made":
Hey! It's thread spools in a vase! I think it's a really cute way to show off some of my threads. I only used colors that I only had multiple spools of for this project, and they wouldn't even all fit in there so I had to try and weed out some of the more "blah" colors.
Here's what it looks like from the other side:
This side is ok, but I really like the bright yellow spool front and center on the other side - don't you?
So, if you find yourself with an overabundance of thread spools, here's a possible way to display them. I still have tons more, so I promise the next thread project will be a little more exciting, if only slightly :)
