Old Thread Spools

This collection is a byproduct of sewing machine collecting :-). Whenever we buy machines in cabinets or cases, we often get spools of thread with them. I started dumping them into a small basket which turned into a larger and larger basket! Now the grandkids love to play with them as they roll over the hardwood floor really nicely! Sometimes we find just the exact right colour in here to topstitch a particular project!

This is a spool of silk thread:

The brand and size information are stamped right into the wooden spool.

I will post a separate blog entry on the table runner under the spool :-).
