Catherine is the wife of Cathleen’s cousin Bob. In their home in Colorado she has a sewing room where she makes clothing. On the wall is a simple wood organizer she uses to hold and organize her spools of thread. I loved the mix of colors and how this very functional spool holder was also a work of art on the wall.
ADDENDUM: Catherine’s son Matt left a comment that the wooden frame and partitions in which the spools of thread are organized is actually an old “type drawer” used by printers.

It is an old printer’s type drawer that my mother has kept her thread in for as long as I can remember. I remember staring at it for (what seemed like) ages when I was a kid. Fantastic picture, Marty.
I just found myself fascinated by it when we were staying there and knew I wanted to photograph it. It was fun getting to hang out with you and your family for those few days, and also, thanks for your web advice for TripodClamps.com .
So beautiful to see the various shades and tones of a color, some with only minute differences. Luscious color!
that is a work of art!
It was really beautiful on her wall.
