I forgot to share these, silly me! They are decorated wooden spools with messages inside, inspired by Phizzychick's and this blog's spools...plus the desire to use up some of my stash of spools, of course. I made these for one of the Art Abandonment swaps, and wrapped inside each one is a message written on grosgrain ribbon, which is sewn to the outer layer. I didn't get photos of the unwrapped spools, but they each have a message I pulled from a Rob Breszney book, along the lines of "Your burden lightened", "Your path cleared", etc.

I also made some prayer flags to abandon, and now I don't remember whether I sent them in the swap package or abandoned them myself!


Thank you for sharing this home with me for so many years.

Wonderful! I have affirmation spools on the list of things to do with the weekend crafternoon group I've been hosting at home. I love yours, they are so fantastic. I am going to show them to my friends as inspiration, thank you Smiley.

These are exquisite.  They definitely will bring joy to the recipients.
