Sunday Stash #178 – Thread Secrets
Y’all know how excited I get about adding pieces to my stash. So imagine me a few months ago when these Aurifil Brillo threads arrived, and I couldn’t tell anyone! Yes, I tried to show Mr. Sparkles but there’s only so much feigned interest and excitement a non-quilting partner can give. Then eventually just turn on a heel and walk away as your still blabbering on about how shiny, or out of print, or how big the sale was. I get it, but I still needed some release! You see, I was forced to keep these threads under wraps as I was using them in my Gender Kisses quilt. I know you savvy stashers out there would have linked one bit to one bob and then Bob’s your aunt, the secret would have been out! I really only needed the two at the front, but like any good shopper, I needed to maximise the shipping costs. Obvs. So I picked up a few more colours I didn’t have, and I’m on a mission to own every single one! Failure is not an option!
Tell me, Glitterati, how are you storing your threads? I want to put them proudly on display, but should I be concerned about sun damage or fading? Also, I want a wall-mountable thread holder that doesn’t look like it came out of Country Crossroads magazine down on the farm. There’s got to be something for the chic crafter, right? Or is this an untapped market that the Molli Sparkles Empire needs to conquer? Tell me what you know!
