what a "spenorah" looks like, this is the one we made.
From my maternal grandmother's sewing basket, which I inherited, came wooden thread spools. She had rewound some kind of awful thick stuff around them (not sure if it was thick thread or some kind of weird embroidery floss) but I kept the spools and they are perfect candle holders. We glued them onto two blocks leftover from the building block days, and spraypainted it all gold.
In other news, just updated the BBF website with more Silk Sock -- 50% silk, 50% superwash merino, 100% luscious!
