Two Thread Catchers

Greetings from Finland!

First I want to thank Chookyblue, 
that you allowed me to join AGAIN this inspiring group!
THANK YOU!!!!
I AM happy and I promise to stay on track this year...

In January I decided to make two thread catchers, because I don't now need a shoe bag.
I really enjoyed to plan small changes for these baskets... 
and you SAL girls give me an extra boost!

I found the cute appliqued rose pattern from Natalie's book. I also wanted to try a decorative stitch on the border as many of us has done. And finally I figured a use for the pastel-coloured hexagons.

It's amazing how many splendid and different version of the thread catcher I have seen here.
This SAL year will be terrific!!!

And I'm ready for the next month...

See You again in February!!!
