2 Thread Catchers made.

Hi everyone.  I am glad to be here again for another year of stitching.  I missed last year but thanks to Chooky, I finally completed my Gardeners Journal top.  Still deciding how to quilt it or if I will send it away to be quilted. In the meantime, I have ordered the Some Kind of Wonderful book and as I had the Red Home Book have been able to make 2 thread catchers for January. I can see why everyone is staying they are addictive.  They are very easy to make and are just too cute for words. So here is a photo. One I added a little extra lining so I could have some showing at the top.
Hopefully I will be able to get a shoe bag made when my book arrives.

Bye for now......  Noela

Such cuteness - I love the way you made the top edge. Give the decorative stitches a try - they can be fun!
