Creative Spaces Blog Hop: Week 5 Threads and Embellishments

Good morning fabulous Hoppers! It's week

5 of the Creative Spaces Blog Hop and this week my fellow designers and I are talking about thread and embellishments. My personal style doesn't include many embellishments, but I use A LOT of thread and I have some pretty well developed opinions about what I like and how I make thread decisions, so I've decided that thread is the best thing I can offer my opinion on on this week.

With this blog, I'd like to focus on how to choose thread, what to think about when you do, and how to test your thread for your projects, so that you know what the results will be when you add it to your final work.

Let's begin by saying that I love thread and I feel it isn't ridiculous at all to say that I'm fairly addicted to buying it. When I buy a new spool of thread, the first thing I do with it when I get it home is to unroll it over a dark piece of fabric to see what it really looks like on fabric. This is especially important then the thread is variegated.
