Thread catcher/pin cushion

Today has been such an unproductive, wasted day.
So I will share a project I made late last year. It is a thread catcher/pin cushion. I had seen these somewhere. I thought they were neat so I made up a pattern and put this together. I wrote out what I did and took photo's along the way. I actually made this for my friend Myra, but I didn't make a second one yet so she never received hers.
I'm a Bad friend, mind you Myra didn't know I was making this for her, so she didn't miss it, I guess it will be a Christmas gift to her.
I had such plans for today. I was going to write and mail my thank you cards, start my fall quilt, clean up part of my scrap/craft room (I'm not fooling anyone if I said my whole room). Then later tonight we were going to go to my brothers place for a outdoor fire, maybe roast some marshmallows.
Well I had a migraine off and on (mostly on) all day. So I ended up napping quite a bit today. So I didn't get anything accomplished.
I did start to feel better later in the evening, but my brother went partridge hunting with a friend. I wasn't up to going anyway so it was just as well.

Talk about hunting, hubby shot a 8 point buck today. He sent me a picture on his IPhone. Thanks hun. He would have liked me to share it on here, but I would rather share pictures of live animals thank you very much for the thought though.
I really don't like wild game. Hubby and the girls do though.
My motto has always been You kill it, You clean it, You cook it. I should also add You eat it.
I know it is healthier for you, but I don't really like the taste.

Still not feeling up to par, so it is off to bed for me.

Hope your day was a creative one.
