FNWF Progress

After having such a busy day sorting out paperwork and making lots of phone calls I hid away in my workroom and sewed......
This was my set up......... A drink, a DVD playing and my sewing

This is what I got done.... 4 thread catchers made with pink crumbs for the trade table

Then I finished this......
My GAIL PAN stitcheries design. Using COTTAGE GARDEN THREAD no... 1201.. PEACOCK




MADE INTO A THREAD HOLDER FOR COTTAGE GARDEN THREADS....


 It fits 24 threads...
 

And I got some more started but more of that later...

I'm linking up with.

  12. Love the stitchery made up into the thread holder. I am currently making something similar for all my knitting needles so everything is in the one place. Going to take quite a while lol as there is no pattern to follow etc. Love those thread catchers too and all that you have achieved for April OPAM to

    I love that little stitchery that you finished and turned into a thread holder.
