Thread Catcher


I found this pattern for a thread catcher basket on The Stitching Room blog (thank you to the writer for sharing the pattern) and had to try to make a 4th of July one! I wish I had of made my stitches more neatly, but next time I will concentrate harder and use a true ladder stitch! It's fun to try new things and this was a fun little thing to try to do on a hot afternoon in Texas!

We spent the early morning (got there at 8:00 and left at noon) at the Canton, Texas Trade Days which is a flea market extraordinaire!! There are hundreds of booths with everything you could imagine for sale--what fun it was! I did enjoy lots of people watching and Maynard got in a lot more walking than I did and saw more things, but I saw lots, too and enough for me! We didn't buy much, but it sure was fun! We wondered "where in the world does all this 'stuff' come from?" And then I thought of all the 'stuff'' that I have at home!! Memo to self: "Remember this when you want to buy more!!!!" Hee Hee!

I hope you all have a safe and happy 4th of July!

Let quilting help you make someone smile!

Jan, your patriotic thread catcher is really cute! One of these days, I'll try my hand at making one....maybe a fall or Christmas theme.
