Catcher - Thread or Sun?

Hi SAL 2013 fellows!
I´m very happy joining this SAL. It´s my first attempt with you.  It was love at first sight!
I dont have the books, I will, I will... already ordered at Annie´s New Zealand, they will have to fly to Portugal, half World, nothing much! I tried to have a Catcher done and used a piece of fabric I already had sewn. You can see,  the size is not the same but if it does not catch the threads, sure it catchs the SUNSHINE!
Happy New Year to all of you!
PS: Here it´s yet 3rd January! 6;30 PM

Very pretty - in this case I don't think size matters!

Pleased you sourced the books.

Thanks for so lovely comments... That´s something I´m not used to have, here people visit my blog but only a little, little few write anything.
This is a great group, I see!
