This weekend, I've been doing a bit of settling into my new sewing room. One problem I had at our old home was a cat that wanted to play with everything I own that is cute, and not enough room to safely display my adorable things. I don't know why it has to be this way, but seriously, anything I think is too cute for words, our Fozzy wants to have for his own.
I still have this problem, but got smart about it. My dad made this shelf for me a few years back out of an old window, so I decided to put all those precious little things in there so I can see and use them, all the while protecting them from my savage little cat.
As you can see, it is chock full of ribbons, tapes, pincushions, buttons, and felted animals. One of my grandmother's canning measuring cups is in there, as well as a tiny little glass milk jug my dad gave me. And do you see all those little wooden spools? My dad used to send those to me all the time from estate sales or garage sales or whereever. He was my biggest crafty enabler.
So today, in honor of my dad (and to say thank you to all of you for the warm, heartfelt emails and comments), I'd like to have a little giveaway for a few of the wooden spools he sent to me, as well as some aurifil thread and an aurifil cotton thread color card from Alex at Aurifil.
Just leave a comment telling me your favorite memory of time spent with your dad. I'll choose a winner tomorrow night, Monday the 12th of December.
THE GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED.
