Sunday Stash #124 – Beggin for Thread
Beggin for Thread is my song of the moment. The artist, Banks, isn’t really talking about sewing, but I love it when my quilting and pop worlds collide even the tiniest of bits. Serendipitously, my Sunday Stash this week is also about thread.
Stooped down and out
You got me beggin for thread
To sew this hole up that you ripped in my head
Stupidly think you had it under control
Strapped down to something that you don’t understand
Don’t know what you were getting yourself into
You should have known
Secretly, I think you knew
You should have known! Secretly, I think you knew! It’s no secret that I use Aurifil thread, but what I’m not always understanding is what colour to use for piecing?! Now, I ain’t talkin’ no quilt police here (pfft, we’re all past that, right?), but what’s your go to colour you’re always beggin for? I’ve always used Aurifil White #2024, but Ms Midge swears by Aurifil Dove #2600 as the best blender. She gave me this a few weeks ago to try out, and as soon as I’ve sewn through all my white bobbins, I’m gonna get it under control.
And, ya know, just because shadows are fun. Hehe.
