oH if I would have only kept all the neckleces my grandmother made me and my sister out of those spools! She did quilting and would sell them to people at her church and I have a few of her's there were made just for me. Seems these are getting harder and harder to find in my area!

Nifty! For some reason, I also think this would be great in a child's room (I have kids on the mind... Hm!!! *alert*)! Teach them how to count using an abacus... Heh! At school, for a short-lived period, they wanted to teach us how to use an abacus... God those things were confusing!

I think it's really pretty, but if I were to do this I would use tension wire things to keep the line from sagging in the middle. A brace would interrupt good abacus flow, though.
