Yesterday's guest blogger at Stash Manicure was Gmama Jane of Grandmama's Stories who told about klosjes or spoolblocks.
When I saw the photo, I immediately thought, "My good friend Roos makes klosjes...
...she even posted a tutorial to show me how to make my own spoolblock!"
Roos also sent me my very own spoolblock kit with the pattern... and I'm embarrassed to say that, other than cutting out fabric for a spoolblock, I haven't sewn together a spoolblock yet!
"Well," I thought, "I'm going to take my spoolblock kit to work and by jingo... I'm gonna make me a spoolblock during lunch!"
And I did...
...well, almost... I still have to sew on the last white piece... but I got started! And with Roos' tutorial to guide me, it wasn't as difficult as I thought it would be.
I had dinner with my friend Deborah after work and showed her my partially sewn spoolblock... and now she wants to make spoolblocks too!
We're going to be having a spoolblock party on this side of the big pond... and it's all the fault of Roos!
