Workbasket Wednesday!

This weeks tool of the week is "My Favorite Doololly". I love this little gadget!

If you are like me, when you turn over your project the back is littered with little thread "tails"! Either you left a long tail when you began your thread, or you only ran it under a few stitches when you ended it. The solution for a quick tidying up of the back of your piece is this little tool. You run the loop end(the part that looks like a needle threader) under several stitches, then you use the little hook to pull the thread tail through the loop. Pull the loop through the stitches and your tail is secure! Who ever came up with the idea for this little gem is a genius! I love this little thing and keep it on hand wherever I take my stitching.

I totally agree....
My dololly tho' has a longer wire loop and I wish it were shorter like yours....oh well can't have everything!

Oh yes! I love my dololly! I've had mine for a long time - it is an 'original' from before they quit making them, then started back. (they were cheaper before!) Not something that I use every day, but it is a wonderful thing to have when you need it!
