Finished: one sewing-machine-shaped, wall-hanging, wooden thread holder:
It looks much less creepy with thread actually on it – something about all those pegs sticking out just looked rather sinister. It probably didn’t help I was taking these photos in the evening, with just an overhead light and one lamp.
I have more bobbins coming from ebay soon. I don’t know how I have survived this long with only 4 – actually I do – layers and layers of different thread colors spun on top of each other. Is there a better way to do that? I guess it doesn’t much matter at this point, since I have 25 brand new ones heading my way – I don’t even have that many colors of thread! Guess it’s time to dream up some more projects that will necessitate more colors of thread to fill this thing up.
