I have great admiration for sewers (not the underground pipes that drain away water, although now that I think about it, I do admire, or perhaps it’s appreciate, them too) no, those who sew with needles and machines. I can sew buttons and hems. I’ve even made an A-line skirt in high school, it didn’t really fit right but the material was pretty!! I digress, to me it’s an art, a skill. I also admire knitters, again I’ve crocheted and knitted my fair amount of scarves and potholders, but never graduated to afghans (not the hound) or anything as great.
I wonder though, and this is my question today, do they or anyone EVER use that piece of thread that is included when you buy clothing? I can’t bring myself to toss it. I have a bag full of threads to clothes I probably don’t even have anymore. When I first see the packaged piece of thread I think, fantastic!, but only for a moment, then I think huh, I’ll never ever use this piece of thread. Is it even enough? What am I to use it for? A hole? A tear? A hem? Not sure. And then, I go add it to my bag of other threads and get on with my day!!
Please tell me, have you ever used that piece of thread? If so, I admire you too!! 🙂
Wishing you a threadful day!
