After tidying my fabric pile and sorting out better storage for my ribbons, I turned my attention to thread. I had a few ‘almost empty’ spools and bobbins plus some really poor quality thread (a stocking filler when I received my first sewing machine aged 10). I lined up all these odds and ends of thread and slowly worked my way through whilst sewing my Sureau toiles. On the inside of each toile is an array of lilac, yellow, pale green, jade green, maroon and pink thread. My sewing box is a happier place for this de-clutter and I have empty bobbins ready to accept the thread that exciting new projects bring.
