A thrift store puzzle and…the animals of course!

I found these rolls of spools at the thrift store today:

Thrift shop thread

They seem to have a glossy finish to them (the ones I picked out).  The name is “Filtex, Inc.”  I’m not sure what they are … does anyone know?  There was a whole laundry basket of them!  Machine Embroidery thread? I am going to play with them for postcard embellishment…

I photographed with my cross stitch project because I put the aida onto a different frame…a longer frame so that I can stitch it easier.  I got that frame at the thrift shop too….for $2.50.  Every once in awhile there is a stitching frame.

Now here is what my cats’ most recent past time is:

Squirrel hunters...inside!
Squirrel hunters...inside!

Stalking the Squirrel!
Stalking the Squirrel!

Note: To Glen Morris!  Thanks for taking the pressure off me for trying to accomplish the crossword puzzle OVER Christmas…impossible…well, unless I really don’t have a life :). .. and I realize that I do have a life!

Until next time!
