sure you can

Victoria @ Hibiscus Bloem said...

Great idea. Nice to have some ideas for future projects. I bet there are lots of things you own that have lived a different life before they arrived with you eh.

They look great just like that, displayed in the lovely old box.

There must be something interesting that can be done with so many wood spools, after the yarn becomes pretty things. What a great find!

I love the thread in the tin box. I bit the previous owner created beautiful things with her hands for her family and friends, with this thread. Your wonderful thread would go perfect with my little sewing stand today. xo

Wood spools make me nostalgic for a time before I existed. We still had the occasional wood spool at my parents house, they always made me so happy!
