Just a Friendly Reminder

Thought I'd just post a reminder for anyone who may have missed my shop announcement. I'll be closing up my shop this Friday night (perhaps Saturday morning when I wake up) so that I can finish packing up my supplies, tools, inventory, etc.
Our movers will be here in less than 3 weeks to pack up everything, load it up and ship it off to Hawaii. It's hard to believe that in just a few short weeks we'll be on a tropical island!

I'm not listing anything new in my shop this week, but if you need more bakers twine than what you see listed, I'll be happy to list more for you. I'll try to keep at least one spool of each color listed at all times until I close up.
If all goes as planned, I'll mail out all orders by noon Saturday. Any remaining orders will be mailed Monday.

I'll re-open the shop sometime in September once we get settled in a little and will hopefully be able to start custom orders sometime in October. It'll all depend on how quickly I unpack and get organized!

Sunday Obsessions ~ Wooden Bobbins

I've returned for another installment of my "Sunday Obsessions". I've been very busy lately and neglecting the blog. Ooops!

This obsession began the same way as the tool box obsession. When I purchased the green tool box for my dad, I wanted to send something to my mom as well. I perused some wonderful Etsy shops and happened upon EmmyLucy. I found a set of four vintage sewing bobbins. Knowing what a talented seamstress my mom is and how much she loves antiques and vintage collectibles, I thought she'd like the bobbins to display in her sewing room. I purchased the set and when they arrived, I wanted to keep them. However, I knew better so I sent them off to my mom. Then I set off to find some of my own..........

I found these at LOVEABUG

There are actually 14 of them!

After I made that purchase, I kept searching for more
and found these lovelies at ReginasStudio

I'm definitely not finished buying these old wooden spindles/bobbins, but I've had to put all shopping on hold until after our big move to Hawaii. Once we get there, I'll begin purchasing more. What am I planning to do with these? Oh, I have plans.....the ideas are flowing so quickly, I need to start jotting them down and sketching out the projects. Don't worry, I'll share the projects as they're completed.
