I have been meaning to do a post about this for quite a while now. Since I don’t yet have my latest thread project completed, I figured this might be a good time to post about my vintage piece. My mom passed away in February, and then my mother-in-law in April. On the way home from my mother-in-law’s funeral I stopped off at my mom’s house. I remembered a piece that a neighbor lady tatted and gave to my mom many decades ago. Probably about 40 years ago. I so wanted to find it and bring it home. I feared that it had been tossed out, but I persevered. Looked through lots and lots of drawers. And wouldn’t you know it, this treasure was in the last drawer that I looked in!! I brought it home and hand-washed it and then took pictures of it. It now hangs in my kitchen. I love it! And I am so glad I looked through *all* of those drawers and didn’t give up.

Hello all! Hope you have had a lovely week, and are enjoying your weekend! My husband and I will be watching the three little ones tomorrow night while their parents go to see Randy Houser at the County Fair.
This post I am sharing with you my “red thing”. I started out to use up some partial balls of #10 thread. I was going to just keep going around and around, and make it into a rainbow sort of thing. I quickly decided that I was losing patience with that idea, so just kept it to shades of reds and pinks. I really don’t know exactly what it is that I made…other than a granny square. I’m thinking it can be used for a doll blanket, a table scarf, or…any suggestions?!
I am working on another thread project, and will be sharing once I am finished. It’s been in the works for a few wks. now, and is taking some time. But it is a thread stash buster for sure! :D
Anyhoo, without further ado…I present to you my “thing”. As always, I thank you for checking out my blog!
