DMC Thread box

I didn't realize that it had been so long since I posted. No tatting to show. But my son Patrick who is a carpenter did get over and build a small deck and new back steps. He also put in new basement steps. Had get him here before hunting season started, other wise I would of had to wait till next summer.

Now I should have a little more time, Aracin great grandson started back to school today. Boy am I going to miss him during the day. It will just be really quite around here. Should be able to get cought up on the cleaning.

There was a store here called Creative Corner (better known as the Pink House) . Her children talked her into retiring at the age of 84. I asked if they were going to sell the DMC thread boxes. They took my name and number any way I brought 10 of them and they are great for putting my thread.


  1. Hello!
    I really enjoyed your blog. Your tatting is beautiful, I've just started to learn, I still haven't figured how to add a thread,but I really find it relaxing and so enjoyable! I cant wait until I can actually make something other than a butterfly. What a nice thread box! Have a great week.

  2. hi Wendy
    Thanks! Glad you enjoyed the blog. It won;t take long to learn to add another thread.

  3. Woo HOO!!! What a fabulous find! I'd snatch those puppies up too, if I could! I hope I come across something like that sometimes for my thread! :)

  5. Thanks. They were a fabulous find. I was afred she would call while I was gone and DH would forget to tell me. I hope you will fine some one of these days. They do hold a lot of tread.

  6. I know I saw this post in August, but I had to come find it again, since I suffer from thread storage envy. LOL!

    So glad you found the thread boxes. Now that you have had them awhile, have you filled them all to overflowing? Just wondering if the Fiber Stash Law applies. (In this case, thread, expands to fill all available empty space.)
