    I thought I was organized..but

    OK I'll start out...while looking for orange thread, I found that I have out grown my ( 2 ) 40 count thread containers. Sigh..still not finding my orange thread.

    Maybe you used it all on another orange quilt? I'd just go buy more.

    Gee is that all of the thread you have? I have sewing thread, quilting thread, embroidery thread and serger thread. Of course any project I start always requires at least one thread that I don't already have.

    I''m with "nanna" you can never have to much thread. Orange is one of those colors that I don't have a lot in my stach. If you are like me you should go shipping. HA HA hope you found it a I know how up setting it is to know you have something and can't find it. goos luck in you hunt.
    Scrapy quilts have more love in them.

    Isn't that the truth! Makes me crazy (and impatient).

    I have eliminated part of the problem. After much experimentation, I realized I can use the same thread for piecing and machine quilting. I also use the same silk thread for hand appliqué and binding.

    I mostely use cream, light and dark grey, some red and keep a spool of black. Those colors seem to work for most of my pieceing. Learned that from working in the costume shop at the university a long time ago. Oh, a couple of different variaged colors for my longarm.

    I lost a box of buttons several months ago. I am convinced they are in the "Twilight Zone". Jim got me some more. If you need it right away, I would just get another spool.

    I still think I'm organized. I just can't remember where I decided the best place to put things was, so look and look and can't find them. Usually when I'm looking for something else, I'll find the item I was looking for the other day. It's sad when your mind starts to go . . .

    I had asked for an address to send a get-well card. I decided to put it on my bulletin board. When I went to send the card, I couldn't find the address, so I had to ask for the address again. I thought I'd better put it on the bulletin board so I don't lose it again, so I did - right next to the original one.

    I have quite a stash of thread - came from having 2 separate sewing areas at one time. I wound up using 2 clear plastic shoe containers and separated them by color. I'd buy it on sale so I didn't run out, however, it always turned out that the color I needed I'd already used up. Murphy's Law.

    Wish you were here. I could probably supply you with several spools of orange thread. Don't know where I got them. I hate orange..........except for orange flowers.
