First Thread Basket

Hi everyone, This is my first year on Chooky's SAL blog and I'm excited to be here. Here is my first thread basket. A few years ago I was trying to teach myself Redwork and this little block was lying around so I made use of it.
I'm loving all the pictures of shoe bags and baskets! Looking forward to the next project. Margaret

Hi Margaret, I love your thread basket! It is a such a pretty pattern. Do you mind if I'll keep a picture of it on my PC?

Not at all Radka. I'm glad you like it :)
The redwork design was a freebie some years ago on the Bird Brain website but I think it disappeared a long time ago now.

Welcome Margaret! How beautiful is your threat catcher! You have really inspired me to 'spiff' up my next one. They really are adictive.
