Oh my goodness! We were walking through wal-mart recently and my son had thread all over his back! I think he was rolling around on the floor again! LOL I just started laughing and picking thread off of him. I think it just goes with the territory of being quilters! It's our job hazard! :lol:

4 year old Grandson saw a long thread on his mother (a non-sewer) and said - Oh, this must belong to MiMi and picked it off of her and put it on me !!!! I guess he's seen way too many threads on me .......

I consider it advertising. Surely does start conversations with non-quilters and non-sewers.

Always. Those are my medals of honor! Even left the house with my needle puller on my hand...;-)
Have fun quilting!
