Q&A with Thread Queen

Nana Jo 54 asked:
What a great way to display the badges. My 10 year old niece just gave me my brother's badges and asked that I put them on a shirt. I suggested a banner or something for the wall. I love this idea. My brother died 18 months ago and is still very much on our minds.
Thread Queen answered:
The wool coat was great to work with, and I liked having the pocket for the paper stuff. Have fun. It will be good to think about your brother as you work on it. I lost my son 13 years ago and he never leaves my heart.
stacyanng5978336 asked:
Where did you get the arrow?
Thread Queen answered:
My son used a wood dowel he "whittled" on a bit and stained. He made the arrow head out of a piece of metal he pounded & painted glossy black strapped it together with thin leather strips. It could also be used to hang a small quilt or tab top balance or photos
