I''m always excited to start another project.
Almost too much so.
Are you also eager to get going on a project?
To start my hand-applique stitching on my
Flags of the American Revolution quilt sew-along,
I had to dig out my applique threads bag...
a bag that I passed up the first dig-through
because this is what I saw:
The the jumbled mess of embroidery floss, pearl cotton and bit of wool inside the bag came from an old project... I guess the last time I used it was when I was working on my Snowy Days quilt, in which I hand-appliqued wool on cottons, and then big-stitch quilted with blue hand-quilting thread and snow-like pearl cotton. The blue hand-quilting thread is what gave me the clue to the project I'd done last with this little bag of threads.
So, my silks, the blue hand-quilting thread, and thimble were on other side of the jumbled mess:
That's what I was looking for!
Excitement is reason that I don't put away stuff before I start the next project, right??
