I received this very unique altered spool from quaggy.  I just love it and never would have thought to do something like this!  It's embroidered and beaded and just wonderful.  Also rather than being just for decoration, it has a purpose as a candle holder!



Thank you so much!  I hope you like yours as much as I like mine.

How clever is that? I never would have thought of a candle holder either! This is going to be a fun gallery! Grin

I received the most delightful little spool from jillybeans!  I went out for my walk at 5:30 this morning, and there it was, waiting in my mailbox.  Between that and the fog, it was quite a magical morning around here.  Cheesy

Here is the spool, as I believe it is supposed to look.


Sadly, the crown did not make it through shipping, and I only found it after reading jillybeans' PM, where she mentioned it.  Before that, it was hopelessly tangled in the shredded paper she used to pack it.  So this is how I first saw it....


And just to show it off to it's best advantage, here's a few detail shots.  The first is a close up on the moon which is about the size of a quarter.


And a detail of the spool area, with it's adorable lace, which came from jilly's grandmother. Cheesy


Thank you SO MUCH jillybeans!  I hope you like the spool I've been working on for you, as much as I love mine.  Just a little more work this weekend, and it should go out early next week.   Kiss

Such a clever idea for the candle holder. And stitching is something I did not think of, quaggy.

Such a sweet spool, jilly! The moon expression is wonderful. Smiley
