In January 2013 Diane Harris at Quiltmaker magazine challenged us to collect our empty spools to see how many we used over the year. In addition to these empty ones I have been using a couple of different large cones of Cansew cotton. I suspect they will empty out over the course of this year. I have always saved the spools. they make good pulleys for Science class and the variety of shapes and sizes make them good for a sorting activity for the primary classroom. Most years I attend the Science Teachers Association of Ontario annual conference and have a bag for my colleagues.
The boys have gone home after their week here and oh my it is quiet. Tonight as the snow swirls outside I think I will curl up with a book. Time for more sewing tomorrow. Piecefully, Joanne
