{I've got sunshine on my mind!}

{{This project was featured at The Twinery on Facebook. Cool, right??}}

Feeling sunshine deprived, I spent a couple of hours in my craft room working with this pretty, sunshine yellow twine. The Twinery calls it "lemondrop". YUM!!!


This funky wall art is hanging in my craft room. The colors & sentiment make me happy. :)
I bought all of the wooden spools in separate bags, according to size, at the Hobby Lobby. I just love these little spools and wanted to make something fun and different with them.


I stitched over the thickers in the sentiment - and for the record, by the time I got to the last line, my sewing needle was gunked up and needed to be changed. {The price of progress, I guess. LOL!}


I also placed some MS punched hearts - from Cosmo Cricket pp under the word "together". The frame was inexpensive and also from Hobby Lobby. It's painted with Delta cream paint.

Hope the sun shines on you today!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog. :)

hugs, patti

I think you and I are both so into yellow right now b/c we both live in Upstate NY. Especially today. Do you see the same overcast & rain for 4 days I see?! UGH!!

This project is gorgeous!!

I could use some sun today Patti and this fun project did just the trick! Made me smile! Love the twine wrapped spools and the saying is fab. The sewn on Thickers are amazing, you might have just inspired me to try it!

Stinkin' cute and cheery! Love the wood bobbins with bakers twine! I just found a handful of them at my Grandpas house when I was boxing things up to get rid of!

I just love this funky frame, I am going to start making things like this for my now neat and organized craft room. The spools of thread look fantastic
