Bonnie Hunter started this.
She has several patterns for them on her quiltville website, though I couldn’t find the one I’m using. But, I’d gladly share it with you if you write me. Just google spool pin doily and Bonnie, yes, our Bonnie who creates obsession in so many of us, will show up right at the top of the list.
But, I warn you, they’re addictive. They’re like a lollipop. Over quick so you think, why not another? And, another. And, another.
I’ve made one for the two spool.
And, I’ve made one for my Grandmother’s 15-91
I’ve made one for each of the featherweights.
And, I suspect I’ll make one for the treadle and the hand crank and the 301. They don’t take any time (about 25 minutes) and they don’t take any thread. I’m likely going to ask the lady in charge of the guild boutique if she’d like me to make some to sell at the quilt show this year. What do you think we could get? They’re about the size of a silver dollar. Goodness knows I have a plenty of this size crochet thread. But, would we get enough money to make it worth my while?
Everybody have a great Tuesday. We have yet another late start at school because of ice that didn’t happen. yippee.
