Need a little Color today?

I am waiting for the primroses to show up at the stores. In the meantime the colors of the spools will do. There are always colors in the studio. Soon,,,,,,,, the primroses will be here again.
I found another metal receipt spindle at the antique mall last week, I see some for around 7.00, so when I saw one for 3.00 I added it to my basket. They are really handy at the workbench. I like to put a bead, or cork on the point, as I have been stabbed a few times reaching over them for something.

A Quirky image for you too use. I have made tags of this post card to out with some sewing projects I sold. I just think it is odd. Our sense of humor changes with the decades.

I remember those spindle in an office I worked in several years back. I wonder if they still have them?

Cute photo!

Fantastic idea to use that receipt spindal for your thread. So when I start working on some sewing projects I'll keep it handy for the different threads and bobbins. Oh yes, the picture is so cute.
Hope you are having a blessed day!
Smiles,
Pat
