    My latest 'Crafty Idea'

    I wanted to Show Off my 'Thread Stands' I've been making these for the 'Linus Project' we use them as Door prizes!
    I get the old paper towel holders at a 'Goodie Store' and use the Wire from Fly swatters a little drilling, glue, paint, and Off to SEW!!!

    These are awesome! I haven't done any woodworking in a long time, but I really want to make a couple of these! They'd be much sturdier than the plastic ones the stores sell, much less likely to wobble, AND you can keep the colors you use most on a couple at the same time!
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    Really clever idea. I'm currently using a tall glass to hold my spool and it seems to do just fine. I'll have to keep an eye out for one of those holders. Thanks for sharing.

    Wonderful idea! I have a friend that just started quilting and doesn't have a lot of money so this is a great idea I will pass along to her.

    I need to get a paper towel holder!! I got a beautiful "hook" that I think is some kind of candle holder for $.50 but there's nothing to hold a cone! I have been using a jar, but I think the paper towel holder would be much nicer! Thanks for sharing!
    You can have any design you want. As long as it's loops!
