Sometimes in the frenzy and anticipation of actually completing a project, I forget to enjoy the beautiful elements that are part of the finished creation. When it comes to thread and floss, I’m frequently guilty of this minor crafting delinquency—becoming so worried about finding “thread spiders” balled up around my home that I temporarily forget just how colorful, textural and important thread is! After all, where would we sewists be without it?
So, I’m curious: Do you collect and hoard thread the same way you do fabric, building up a beautiful stash so that when the right project comes along you have the perfect thread?
