I can't remember where I saw this last year, but someone said it would be fun to save all of our empty thread spools and see how many we used throughout 2014.
I was pretty shocked when the grands took them out of the box and set them up and counted them to find out that I had actually gone through 41 spools of thread.
As you can tell, I use lots of different types of thread from Sulky, Coats and Clark, Signature, Gutermann, YSl, etc.. Most of this has been donated to me or purchased on sale when I see it and that is the reason we have so many different colors and sizes of spools.
In my quilting, I try to use all my thread keep some basic colors on hand such as black, tan, white and gray as I find they do quilting and blending nicely.
If anyone else did this in 2014, I would love to know how many spools you used!
