    Look what I found!

    This nice little pile of thread was wrapped around the wheels on my chair! If I hadn't spent the last hour pulling, snipping and unwinding it...I never would have believed it! No wonder my rockin' had no rollin'...

    I have the twin pile of thread. I, too, got excited & took a picture of it. Too funny. Thanks for making my day. (I get excited about little things. LOL)

    Looks like what I pull out of my vacuum once in a while. (It was worse when my daughters lived here with their very long blond hair.)

    My machines sit on laminate flooring but part of the room is carpeted and your photo is why I use a broom to sweep before I run the sweeper. My kids think I am crazy!

    I don't think I ever got quite that much out of mine, but I have to clean the rollers on my tables occasionally, too. It's amazing what they pick up!

    I pulled about half that much thread from one wheel of my sewing chair yesterday. For some strange reason, thread was only around the one wheel. Nice to know that I am not the only one who accumulates thread.

    save them and put them out in the spring for the birds to build their nest.
    Now that the wheels are clear, set your rocking speed at slow..
