Christmas Spools

The Christmas season finds me enjoying wooden spools and what can be made of them! I came across a basket of wooden spools at a garage sale this fall and bought the whole basket. The spools were older, larger and more interesting than the wooden spools I have saved from my early sewing days. Heritage Spools by Susan Lenz inspired me to dress these spools up for Christmas. Only seven have been completed so far, and one of those left in a box as a gift, but I intend to continue until I have a a well-filled garland. Here’s some pix!  Merry Christmas to All!
