trade secret i forgot to mention
Thank you for all my 'speedy recovery' well wishes, I'm feeling much better today already!
Today when I was doing some sewing I remembered a trade secret that I wanted to share. Being the true bargain hunter that I am, ages ago I bought myself a packet of 10 white cotton rolls of thread for a bargain basement price. I thought I was a winner!
Well, since using up all my white reels I went and spoiled myself with an expensive reel of Gutermann thread. It is so beautiful to sew with! All the problems and frustration I was having with the other cheap cotton makes sense now. Trade secret - spend the money and buy good quality thread! : )
Tonight I updated the This Is blog roll! Hurrah! And I need to quickly invite a This Is player to suggest our theme for Sunday... I would like to ask Kept in a Jar for her suggestion.
