I got this idea about a week or so ago and Saturday when me and Jen had to run to Fred's for some more cleaning supplies for the church I got what I needed.
I made a thingie to hold my balls of thread while I'm crocheting. I bought a toilet paper roll holder for about $4 from Freds and got a piece of a 2x6 from church. They were throwing a lot of old lumber and stuff away so I figured they wouldn't mind if I snitched that little piece. I rescued it from the dump, right?
Anyway, I finally got everything out a little while ago and put it together and tried it out. It works! The ball of thread is off the ground and rolls freely on the holder. I'm sure it's not perfect but it's a lot better than it rolling around the floor or something.
I just wanted to show it off. I would have done it yesterday but after scrubbing 3 swimming pools I could barely lift a hook, much less a screwdriver.
I'm probably going to paint it later, don't have any so I'll have to hit the dollar store and see what they have.
BTW, whoever's in the Doily Swap, that's a sneak preview of the doily I'm making, hope whoever gets me likes it.
