Do you know what this is?
Look closely. I bought two Missouri tomatoes in this little plastic package this week. Don't judge me; there were no Arkansas tomatoes in that whole store! They were quite nice tomatoes though there's no comparison to Arkansas tomatoes of course. Just sayin'. I looked and looked at that little plastic package and just like magic I had this amazing idea.
I buy red Presencia perle cotton thread, size 12, in extra large balls. They are hard to find but when I do I buy a couple because I love red work. love. red. work. I have too much red work. I've run out of places to put red work. But I can't quit...it's addictive. And that's where the amazing, incredible idea came into play.
I present to you my Missouri Tomato Thread Holder! I probably should have taken that label off before I took this picture but I'm out of Goo Gone and can't remember the formula for taking off labels from homemade stuff. Come to think of it I don't think I've ever had any Goo Gone.
Don't you love it? Sometimes I amaze myself. It takes so little to make me happy. :)
