Sorry it took me so long to pick the winner...crazy day. Thanks to everyone who left such nice comments about my great aunt and the fabric, she would have loved it! Random number was 15. 15th comment was Sherri!!! Sherri, I'll be emailing you soon for your snail mail address. Congratulations!!

I also have a Tool Time Tuesday update.

I never imagined it would become so popular...I hope I can keep finding things to pass along to all of you. Don't worry, I have a few more up my sleeve. I might have to expand my search to other types of stores!!

Well, the update is another idea to expand on TTT. I am calling it "Friends on Friday". I have had a few friends show pictures of their TTT creations and others have given me such great ideas to go along with the posts. Here are a few:

In the TTT were I used the eye bolt for a thread necklace, Karen from Journey of a Quilter, made the cutest necklaces with all different ribbons. You must go see them, oh my gosh...too cute!!! She sent me an e-mail with a great idea for them too. She is making one necklace for each of her different project boxes, so it will be there ready to sew with the matching thread...all set to go!!! So smart and such a time saver.

Another great idea came from Kaaren, at The Painted Quilt, about the latest TTT with the little apron. Kaaren thought it would also be great tacked the apron to the front of your sewing table to hold all your "can't live withouts". She also thought you could attach a pincushion that was filled with sand, to weight in down, and have the little apron hanging from it. So cute, I can picture it now...You could also use some velcro too.

and finally, a cute picture of someone wearing a eye bolt necklace. Go see Naoko's blog, Bear's Patch. The post is the second one down, I think, but I wanted you to see her cute dog Lucky...he's not feeling so good right now. Go see him and wish him well. Her blog is great too, beautiful quilts and wonder fabrics.

Well, hopefully that's what "Friends on Friday" will be about. All my great blogging friends sharing pictures and other great ideas from the "Tool Time Tuesday" posts. So if you have any ideas or pictures of your eye bolt necklaces, aprons or from the first TTT the binding holder, just send them to me and I'll post them on Fridays and link to your blog.

Have a great rest of the weekend,

  2. I really like the idea of both TTT and FF. I have always used things for other purposes and it is great to see a kindred spirit.
