Thread Catcher

I'm back from a blog vacation.  No I didn't go anywhere just took some time off.  This is one of the projects I completed during my time away.  It is a thread catcher.  I made two of these wonderful creations.  The other was a birthday gift for a quilter friend.  It is so convenient to have a little bag right there at the sewing machine where I can drop those thread clippings and other scraps.  The pincushion also is very handy.

The project is an Anita Goodesign Project "SEW FUN".  It includes a number of great sewing related designs and instructions for the thread catcher and a wall organizer.  I simply love Anita Goodesigns machine embroidery.  Later I'll be posting another of their projects (a tote for my sis).
Below is a close-up of the embroidery design.  I used my Janome 11000 embroidery machine for this project.

That is really cute. Love the embroidery. I need to make something like this-I just throw my thread and clippings on the floor! Glad you had a nice break.


Your thread catcher is gorgeous! Looks way too pretty to use! Also love all of the Easter things you have made. Looks like you are having a blast with your embroidery machine.

Very cute! A friend here has one of these machines. She made teatowels at Christmastime with different Christmas cookie recipes on each one. Looks like you've had a great time creating. Best wishes, Tammy
