I wonder if anyone else salivates over thread the way I do. I know I have an obsession with fabric, but my thread obsession tops that. Sadly it is scary true.
So when I see a thread I don’t have? I must own it. I love to experiment and see what kind of interesting things I can do with threads. What kind of texture? what kind of color play with the fabric? how will it behave? etc.,
One thing wonderful about the big world wide web is that I can obtain almost anything my little heart desires in any far off corner of the world and have it sent to me in a small town or large. Of course this also means it is really really difficult to put the brakes on my thread lust and prevent gorging myself on it. I sheepishly admit, I have no self control.
For a long long time I have wanted to try out the flat silk Japanese embroidery thread. I finally found a source and I now have it to fondle (protectively covered of course) for a little while before I try it out in the needle and on fabric. Such luscious, decadent and elegant thread. Sigh.
The one good thing about pigging out on thread? no calories. This is how I justify each and every purchase and that works for me!
