...but I felt like sharing this cool spool of thread:
Look at the bottom of it. It's so old, it comes from West Germany! Okay, so maybe that's not *so* old, but for a spool of thread, it's pretty old! Plus it's older than I am--that makes it officially ancient. (Hee hee, just kidding!) This is one of the things I inherited from my grandmother. It came with all the other materials to make a skirt and jacket set, but it really wasn't my style, so I disassembled the materials and will use them for other projects.
