The tangle in my heart.

I have a heart shaped box that I made about 30 years ago that is filled with a tangle of embroidery thread. It's one of those things I keep for.... emergencies, I guess. Maybe for a time when I have endless hours to sew and create, but can't make it to the store to buy thread. (?)



I enjoyed this post by a very creative woman who amazes me with her continuous flow of beautifully stitched projects. My tangle of threads just sits on a shelf.



My current supply of embroidery thread is nicely separated in two metal film filing boxes that I bought at the St. John's Helpful Shop. I am using some of it to work on my truck quilt.




Which is rolling along rather slowly.
