Well, this happened on Wednesday…..
At first it was just a hassle to have to stop, get the new spool and re-thread the machine. But then I started thinking how many hours of enjoyment I had obtained from that 3000 yard spool of thread.
It was used to piece an unknown number of quilt tops…quilts for babies, quilts for Veterans, quilts for charity and quilts just for ME!!! It was used to practice machine quilting, to piece endless scraps together and even to mend a few clothes along the way.
Sweet Claire used it on quilts made for herself, her brothers and her friends…….
….and my friend Ruth used it make a Christmas gift for her husband…..
After remembering all of these fun memories, I looked at the new (6,000 yard) spool and started dreaming of new projects to come……what will they be????

That’s quite a positive spin on an annoying occurrence! I might try it next time.
That’s a different way of looking at it. I like it.
