I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.

You lucky gal, MW! All of your loves in one beautiful piece. Fantastic work, PerfectlyBohemian! I'm jealous that you got to spend some time at the farm; I want to go to there!

I had a sneak peek at the Alice base and fell in love with it then, and to see it complete blows my mind. Amazing!

The hanging spool for Jennie is gorgeous. Simply gorgeous! I especially love the clock face on the top of the spool.

Oh my, what a wee owl! fancybutch, how the heck do you needle felt without having fly-away wool everywhere?! He's too cute!

Another beautiful spool! alwaysinmyroom went with a beach theme (so funny that we sent each other ocean themes!)

Look at this: almost paradise!


I love the palm tree with the treasure map tacked onto the side. And the treasure! But why "almost" paradise? Oops, some dastardly pirate has met with untimely death on this island.
RIP, greedy pirate!


Even the back is decorated beautifully:


Thanks so much, alwaysinmyroom! I love my tropical spoolie!

Thanks for the beautiful pictures!  I am snagging them since I have yet to master taking nice pictures of little things...

remember that I said I started with something very old?  The washer weighing down the spool so that it won't topple over was found in the roots of a 60 year old apple tree that fell over on my land...I have been saving it for nearly 15 years...ha ha ha...the spool is from my mother's sewing kit from the 1960's...thread was a quarter back then...

Thanks..it was a lot of fun trying to stick to the small spool size that racky and I agreed upon...she is one tough partner... Grin...

I did do a separate post, MW, but I snagged her pictures.. Grin.

Holy cow, that island spool is amazing! The tree is super neat and the pretty blue beads and the sand are really cool.
