How was your weekend? Mine was very full but I had a great time. Dinner and crafting at Kristie's house Friday night was such a perfect evening of friendship, great food, and working on my coasters for the swap hosted by Amy at Ibby Bee.
I have three freelance technical writing jobs to do this morning, and then I’ll be able to finish my coasters for mailing to my swap partner. So, since I haven’t anything finished to share, here’s a project I made last March for those of you who didn’t know me during my non-blogging Flickr-only days.
This is a threadcatcher which sits either on the arm of my chair or the edge of my sewing table. It collects all the flotsam and jetsam of thread snippets that otherwise make a mess.
The pattern is from IndyBags (found on eBay). The frame is the plastic rim of a Breyer's Ice Cream lid with the extraneous cardboard part removed. The pincushion part has a rubber shelf-liner backing so it won't slide. Four 1”-square drapery weights inside the fiberfill stuffing help give it weight so it stays where you want it.
