But this holder is kinda cool as the threads are relaxed and straightened and easy to remove with out getting tangled.. Do any of you use these...? Does this thingy have a name? Where do you get them? AND is there a special tool or trick for inserting the skeins of threads? Judging from the feel of the plastic I believe these are rather old and they did come from an estate sale..
Now these are actually tops I found at a thrift store... I just can't imagine anyone wearing one...especially if you have any boobs.. But the red one I found a couple years ago and shared it with Cathy K. When cut into strips it makes the MOST marvelous flowers for CQ... The bottom two I found the other day and since they are the colors I'm using in my suffragette quilt, I thought that I would cut them up and see if I can do something extremely exciting... I just love the feel of them and they remind me of a "slinky toy" because they change shape continuously... Right off the bat I can see they would make marvelous ruching... Watch for them on my quilt!
