However having said this I am going to check it out and see if she has a much faster method that I can use, because I do so much of this. lol

    Thanks for this site, I learned this technique in the first beginning quilt class I took. It was a God send!

    Great idea, since my sewing machine does not have an undo button like Word, I do a lot of unsewing and this is a good tute

    Sometimes my fingers don't want to grab the thread the way they used to, so I use tweezers to pull the thread.

    I find picking stiches very soothing and calming.. :) And a clue if I have to keep doing it that I need to finish up and take a break. Thanks for the link!

    I use a lint roller for picking threads.
