Threads

My sewing/craft room destash in still going on. More listings several times a week. Sometimes it takes listings 24 hours to show up on my sales page, so please keep checking back. This week I have been listing some of my vintage knitting and crochet pattern booklets.  Great deals!  My sales page link. Thanks for looking!


Lots of threads


I finished the quilting on my Ricky Tims flower quilt. Now for a time consuming job, the tucking of the threads. I had a ton of starts and stops. I like the look of the threads tucked neatly away. Sometimes I do go over a previous stitching line, but I felt for this piece it would look too clumpy. I have spent two sessions tucking, think I have two more to go. Then to trim and bind.

  1. Wow! Look at all those thread tails! You DO know about the "thread loop" method of burying them, don't you? It makes the work (almost) effortless... and you only have to thread the needle ONCE!!!

    1. Hi Meloney! I think the 'thread loop' method is this: you take a good length of thread, and thread both ends of it through the needle. You are left with a loop. Then you place on of the threads that needs to be buried through the loop and take a stitch like you normally would to bury it. Pull it through, and it buries the thread but you are still left with the loop for the next one to be buried. I hope that makes sense! Happy Happy Wednesday to you. ~smile~ Roseanne

  3. Finishing off threads - a necessary evil. Will be so rewarding when complete!
