|The simplicity of this one is very appealing to me. It took less than half of one package.|
|The other half of the package went into this one, more shallow, about 12 inches wide.|
|I have been tossing my used tea bags into this one. It takes color beautifully.|
|After putting colored thread in the bobbin for a few rows, I went back to white which I prefer. The colored threads are hidden under the fold.|
The one on the far left is a favorite, about 5 inches in diameter, very simple with straight sides instead of the gradual curve I've used in other bows. It is my thread catcher now. The tiny one in the middle tested some inks I had on hand. Boy, does this stuff take color! I can't wait to try some real dye. The flat platter was an experiment with sashiko (of course!) - hard on my hands and the dark thread is too jarring.
I might have a new hobby. Oh, dear.
