I also have accumulated a good-sized stash of old thread for basting -- most of it on wooden spools.  I cringe every time I think about all the wooden spools I threw away in my youth.  Wish I had them back now!  

I displayed some. And I used some in the rag rugs I made. I figured it didn't matter if it was poly or what...as long as it held it together :)

Great idea, Shelley.  I'll save it for that.

Had lunch with Carrie Boyles, Donna Mcuire and Sally Hauser(Chris" sister-in-law)  today.  So nice to see them and catch up.  

Also talked to Nancy Sears and her sister, Judy.  They sold their house in Show Low and have been living in Nancy's little house down here in Sun Lakes.  They just found the house they want down here and should close the sale Oct. 27.  Hope it goes smoothly for them.

Oh, how fun! I miss that people don't go this far when traveling, so I don't get lunches/dinners with people. Glad to hear everyone is doing well :)

Looks like the forum is a little odd today… But Dee regarding your question about Altoid tins… I have used one for a long time as a mini sewing kit. I have a magnet on the inside for needles. I sewed a couple of felt squares together (wool would make even better sense) and blanket stitched the edges closed. Filled it with cotton balls. Makes a great miniature pin cushion. I also put a tiny seam ripper in there, and stuck some Thimble stickers to the inside of the lid. We’ve also gotten some really tiny scissors before in our goodie bags at retreat and so I have a pair in there as well. I’ve also been known to throw in a few safety pins. I also made a mini sewing kit for the glove box of my car. To that one I’ve also added things like a tiny tube of super glue, some random buttons and a couple of bobbins with different colored thread. If you don’t want to waste the bobbins, you can also just wrap thread around a square piece of cardboard. Or if you’ve done Crosstitch, those little precut dohickeys work excellent.

Carolyn, I’m sorry to hear you’ve been sick! How are you feeling now? Are things starting to improve?

I'm feeling a little better, guess I will live.  Just to be on the safe side my doctor had me take another COVID test to make sure I didn't get a false negative last Monday.  I took the test again on Friday and it came back negative.  Just a hell of a cold.  I'm not coughing as much as I was so I think I'm on the mend.  The crazy thing is I have lost my hearing in my left ear.  At one time both ears were plugged up but now it is just the left ear.  I can stand in front of the microwave and not hear it running.  I have an appointment to see my doctor on Monday, even though I'm feeling better I'm concerned about my hearing loss.  I'm sick and tired of being sick.  This has been going on since the 16th of Sept.

((((((((Carolyn)))))))) hope you start feeling better very soon. I will pray for you. Very good it is not covid, but even the cold can make you feel icky.
