......I forgot to include in my 'parade of projects'.
The antique silk spool came from Bird Brain Designs.
(just noticed they are out of stock, hopefully they will get them back in soon)
It makes a perfect holder for my embroidery scissors....
I wrapped batting around the spool
then covered it with a scrap of Ghastlie fabric to make a pin cushion....
luv.....it.....it sits on the couch beside me...no more
hunting for my scissors!!
