Little Treasures

I have alot of embroidery threads and am slowly collecting some lovely variegated chenille and silk threads, which all need storing.  I was browsing Etsy a couple of weeks ago and look what I found... aren't these just darling.....

Handmade little wooden thread keeps by Lori Brechlin of www.notforgottenfarm.etsy.com  My absolute favourite is the button boot..... but I'm pretty taken with the whole idea.

I think these are a great present for anybody who stitches ... and you can never have too many.... just as you can never have too many threads....

oooh, much more delicious than a bowl of ice cream!    Next week a sneak peak at a new, more modern quilt that I am working on, which I have called 'Winter Solstice'.
