It had been a 31-spool year. I thought the idea of saving your spools during a year to see how many you actually used was a really clever idea!
I saved all of my spools from 2012 and blogged about it early in 2013.
It had been a 37-spool year for me.
Then I invited readers of Quilty Pleasures to save their spools for 2013.
And now the time has come!
Get ready to count your spools.
When I counted mine, I was shocked.
Ten measly spools. What a depressing thought!
I don’t think I missed a bunch of spools. I could have lost one or two but certainly not many. Was I busier in 2013 than in 2012? Hard to say. One thing’s for certain: I’ll do my darnedest to use more spools in 2014!
Karen asked readers of The Selvage Blog for their 2013 results. Answers ranged from 11 spools to 189 spools. Now that is some serious sewing going on!
Karen herself used 38 spools. It seems like most people use between 20 and 40 spools. I want to be up there with the lady who used 189 spools!
How about you? Did you save spools in 2013? How many did you use? Please let us know in the comments below.
And if you’re new to this spool-saving business, start now and we’ll chat again at the end of this year. Enjoy every inch!
