Just for fun!



A few years ago my husband mentioned something about a friend of his whose Grandmother had a box full of old spools and thimbles that she had used or worn through. That day I put a basket on my shelf and began placing all my old empty spools in it. I don't have any worn-through thimbles because I don't do much of any hand work. The other day while I was sewing ALL DAY I finished another spool and dropped it in the basket. Then I had an idea!



How about another contest!? Look at the picture and guess how many spools are in the basket! Whoever gets closest to the actual number will win a prize. I'll post the prize in the next day or two- when I figure out what it's going to be. But I promise it'll be a good one. For now, just keep guessing!


P.S.- I don't think it's going to be too hard! ;o)

My guess is 73. I started doing this recently. I can't believe the amount of thread I go through! I've also started writing down how many bobbins and spools of thread I use to quilt a quilt. Piecing was too hard to do since I never do one project all the way through until quilting.

I say 49...what a neat idea! My dog likes to chase the empty spools around the floor, so he gets them all. Loves it when he gets a new one. We keep them in his toy box, and even tho he is a tiny pomeranian, he still takes all his toys out of his box and spreads them out all over the house...along with his blankie (a fat quarter sized piece of fleece that is black and WELL loved!)
