By leaving your email within your comment, I can find you. I realize that this is sometimes a scary thing to do with scams and all but if you disguise the email as say.....

this is the perfect way to hide from the unwanted eye. So please help me out if you are one of the non-responders.
Thank you, in advance.....Ravelly Rhonda!!

Threads Idea Snippets


The other day I posted about what I do with the thread at the end of the spools.  I asked what my blogger buddies did with theirs end of spools. I received some great answers that I wanted to share with everyone.  If anyone else has ideas not mentioned below, please leave me a comment on what you do.  You do not have to be a quilter to comment and all comments are welcomed.  Snippets

Barb said that she uses the threads when chain sewing as I do.

The Quilting Pirate said that she tends to wind the threads onto bobbins and puts them with her applique hand working bobbin holder.

Fiesta said that she is using the threads to stitch her hex blocks.

Gene said that he put the spools aside for hand sewing.

JustCindy is using the threads for basting her projects such as the hex blocks she's working on.

Haupi is new to quilting and is excited to read all the suggestions.

Needled Mom had tip that I'd never thought about before. she collects the threads and sandwiches them between some Dpioni silk and tulle fabric. She then free motions the pieces, cuts them into flower shapes, adds some yarn and beading to the center, adds a pin to the back and uses them to embellish clothing.

Joanne said that she uses her end of spool threads in her bobbins because it's easier to change them out than to thread her machine. Joanne is a long arm machine quilter. Make sure you check out her blog.

It's always so much fun to read how many uses there are for something.

thanks for the shout out on the long arm...I put the leftover bobbin thread from the HQ on bobbins for my Janome so I don't have tons of bobbins with just a smidgen of thread on them.

Don't count the days, make the days count!
