Thread board

Inspired by what Sew Brunswick’s husband made, I put in a request to one of my brothers (I have three!) to make me a thread board.  Look what was delivered last night.


The top is for cotton reels.


The blank middle is room for expansion (which is inevitable!) and the bottom section houses bobbins.


Miss A and I had fun this morning loading it up.  I’m one very happy sewing obsessed big sister.
