Just a Reminder

It's black Friday and as we head into the official start of the Christmas season, I've been making little spools. I was inspired by the cute spools I had seen by Nanette and Jacquie. Thought they could serve as a reminder not to get to tightly wound up in all the hustle and bustle. But to unwind and enjoy the season. I have a plan for these but they were so cute I'll have to make more cause I'm thinking they'll make a delightful quilt.
What do you like to do to unwind during the holiday season?

  5. I saw a spool quilt quite some time ago where the spools were laid out through the colors of the rainbow. It went from light to dark in the different colors as it flowed from one color to the next.

  8. Em! How fantasic. I love this. Love how they in fact DO serve as a reminder not to get to tightly wound up but rather to take it easy and enjoy the season. :)
