Thread Catcher

Thanks for your comments on my last post . Finally , I have a sewing finish to show .


After seeing thread catcher on various blogs , I decided to make one . It is a one day finish item and I  did both hand and machine sewing . It was good to use sewing accessories - mat, rotary cutter , quilt ruler , marking pen which usually are rarely used . The free tutorial can be found here  .

I have run out of some threads for my cross stitch WIPs and will hopefully receive in few days .

Here are some great pictures of the skyline as viewed from our seventh floor apartment and taken by Anshita in last two months .

Below are the views from the front main balcony

October skyline



Hope you enjoyed seeing the pics . Our front balcony is west facing so we get to see sunset everyday :) Some of these are very beautiful compared to the sunsets we have seen at various tourists places .

Have a crafty week ahead

  6. I love your thread catcher. I've been planning to make one for a while but have never really had time to sit down and make it....it would take me ages as I don't really get along with my sewing machine ;) Your pictures are amazing, it must be wonderful to watch the sun set every evening.

  8. A friend in California has made many of those thread catchers. Awesome sky photos. This is the best time of year for capturing color and clouds.
