The twine is done!


 Baker's twine is popular right now on cards and layouts.  I wanted some but didn't see any sense in paying over $10 to get just a few yards shipped to me.  So, I went on Facebook and asked if anyone was interested in splitting some of the large cones of twine with me since each cone has 3,400 yards.

It took me a while, but I got 65 shares of the twine measured, bundled and ready to mail.   Fred made a device to use for the measuring or I'd still be standing here looking at 5 cones of twine trying to figure out the best way to do that!

There were 13 of us who went together to share the twine.We each got 230 yards of five colors.  I think I have enough twine now to last me a lifetime!  LOL! 

Now that I have this little project finished, I'm going to go make some cards and USE some of mine!
