I have been having fun making these little spools this week. Joan from Keeping You in Stitches, got me started. She was looking for people to trade spools with, so I joined in. We traded 25 spools with each other. Then I asked Karen from Sew Primitive if she wanted to trade some spools also. She and I traded another 12 spools. In the end I laid them all out and this is what I got! I will be adding another border, but don't know exactly what yet. The blocks finish at 4-1/2". So far the top measures about 38" square.
Also, I have been doing a little cross stitching in the evenings. This is a darling one from Blackbird Designs. You may know that they have a blog and show a lot of their stitcheries there. Also they have free patterns occasionally. I have made a couple of those as well. Don't we all just love to keep our hands busy!
