Whoops! I left this morning for work in such a hurry, I forgot to post the Clue!!
Here is #3: Three and five-letter descriptions from the world of cross stitching: SAL, LNS, WIP, BAP & SABLE
And.... I see a problem with Clue #2, so I will be adding an additional clue after today's. So many of you have answered 'What is a tail catcher?' which does describe what I was after, BUT.... I was looking for "What is a Dololly?" , made by Mardina years ago. Anything out now is an imitation of her SILVER accessory. The Dololly does catch the tails and tuck them... but I only have known this accessory as the Dololly. BTW--FOUR of you did get this clue--good job -- with Cindy Loo being the first, as of this writing! However, it really is splitting hairs, and I think a 'do-over' is in order. So, we will have another clue after today.
