A pleasant surprise arrived in the mail today. It was from Karen Witt and Erin Witt, the authors of the quilt book I profiled a couple days ago on my blog (See the August 17 post for more details on their book). I was their editor on the project. As a token of their appreciation for my help, they sent me this lovely spool holder! I put it to use right away with some vintage spools of thread and will keep it handy on the table next to my sofa in my parlor as I sew while watching television. Thank you so much, Karen and Erin!
