I saw this idea here (http://ephemeralalchemy.blogspot.com/2010/02/thread-spool-poetry.html) and knew I had to make some for my friends. I wanted to include 3 things which are really important; love, laughter and of course my friends!

I made them a bit more scrappy, err shabby chic? Wink They were made from whatever I had to hand, so they were a great way of using up little scraps of things, and I'm sure they will be appreciated more than anything I could have bought.







I used paper to attach the fabric to the spool. Had to get some paper in there somewhere!

I saw something similar to these and thought I might try it out, but now....maybe not so much. You're tough to compete with!  Cheesy

Ha ha, you have to do it, AR, they're so much fun to put together and I know yours would be better!

I think I might have to make one for my bloke too, but it would have to be random song lyrics or something not so mushy Cheesy

I like that job title...I'll be right over, kittykill! Wink

What a great idea. I love them! What about putting a loop on them so people can hang them from their Christmas tree? (Now I think I have a new project.)  Cheesy

"Better" is just crazy...different is more accurate.

Racky, I love the ornament idea. Maybe I'll make one for my parents' tree this year, because I won't get to see them over the holidays.

Thanks! I might have to string them up and see what they look like.

I made these the other day (yes I'm going through a spool-obsessed stage)...but I didn't put the two ideas together Cheesy
