A Rolling Hop...or something like that.



Several weeks back, I send this fuzzy cell phone photo to Cynthia and told her I was thinking of sending  these old wooden spools out to a few bloggers I admire.  She encouraged me to run with that idea.  I found these spools at Nelda & Emylou's Antiques Etc. : Vintage Pieces.....Vintage Prices   31 Main St. Sussex NJ.  There was a whole big basket full of them!  I had no idea what to do with them, but had to buy them.  Then I thought that maybe a few bloggers might have some good ideas for these wooden spools~surely they (you!) are a creative bunch.  I asked a few ladies and they said yes.  They didn't know what was in the packages.  That is what I love about creative types...they will say yes without knowing exactly what they are saying yes to :-D

The rules are real simple: Use at least one of the spools received~Post the final project or the work in progress between the last week in October and the end of November~Let me know about the post so I can feature the participant on my blog/facebook/pinterest that day (and all the other participants can give a shout out too)~Have Fun!

I am so excited to see what these ladies do with the wooden spools!  I have one or two ideas swirling around, which is promising.  Because I have had them for a couple months and have drawn a total blank.

Hi Christine,
Thanks for including me in on this challenge I was looking at the package today and taking pictures of what you sent. The ideas are all swirling around in my head, I am sure one of them will make it to my fingers.

I've started on one of my spools and have some ideas (the original one included) swirling around. I'm trying to get some pictures edited of what all you sent me and maybe post about it a little later today. I can't wait to see who else is involved in this one and what they create with the goodies!

What a wonderful idea! I have some of those spools from a sewing basket of my grandmothers. You really come up with the coolest ideas girl!
