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.
