    Thread cart

    Name:  2.jpg

Size:  1.09 MBI wanted to share the thread cart my husband made for me today using a set of shelves.I had the idea he made it happen. He added castors to the bottom so I can roll it from one sewing machine to the others. We may add one more section to the top,like he added on the sides, for more spools. I just set my pin cushion and small thread tote on the top shelf. yesterday I got a new quilt book.101 small quilts.Just out from Martindale press.With the thread all organized I am ready to quilt. judy j Name:  3.jpg

    WOW, what a great idea. I couldn't do that, my three cats would have a ball with all that thread.

    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    Oh, Jingle you gave me such a chuckle. I could just picture the cats jumping into the middle of the spools and knocking them everywhere. Imagine the noise.
