thread bits // trimming threads


As I was sewing and piecing and quilting and sewing some more, I finally found myself trying to get into a good habit. When I reached the end of a seam and cut the threads from the sewing machine, I went back. I went back to the start of the seam and I trimmed the threads. Both cuts were using the built in thread-trimmer on the sewing machine.

Getting into that rhythm saved me so much time, and I don't know why I didn't start doing it sooner. It's these little things that make the difference when sewing. And this one produced a very happy pile of thread bits.

Can you believe that the 4th of July is less than a week away? I thought you might like to stitch a little firecracker for the holiday. You could stitch a festive necklace to wear for the holiday!
