Thread, Thread, Thread

OK, no one ever told me I would be wanting lots and lots of thread. I purchased a few spools this week when we went to Eugene to see our daughter. I am surprised at how much it cost. I have always looked at thread as being something out of sight and not payed much attention to it. I now have a whole new appreciation of it as a design element. Now I have done machine quilting before but I have used thread I had on hand. I will now be paying attention to sales of thread so I can add to my thread stash. The thread I purchased is for me to use on my Blue Heron piece.

I hope to spend a bit of time this weekend sewing and playing with thread.

I hope all of you have had a great week. I am thankful it has been uneventful here but my heart goes out to Japan.


  1. Supplies are like that - addictive - aren't they?
    Best of luck with the projects this weekend!

  2. thread can be expensive but I think it's better to pay as much as you can because it's mightily frustrating when they fray or snap which the cheaper ones tend to do. My pansies aren't planted yet, they were so dry when I bough them that I am giving them a good soak before moving them into my planters. Don't want to kill them with shock!

  3. thread is indeed a luxury item! Enjoy using it though. I love your heron!
