Well I finally decided to just go ahead and order a couple shuttles. I even broke down and ordered a few balls of Lizbeth thread to try it. I am such an excessively frugal person so I am not sure how much I will use the more expensive threads. Even when I am sewing I end up threading my needle a million times because I try to not waste thread even though sewing thread is not awfully expensive. Sometimes the frugal-ness gets in the way of completing projects or sometimes even starting projects because something in me just doesn't want to waste my stash of goodies which kind of follows into my next issues of hoarding. I am not like the hoarders on tv (yes I am guilty of watching every episode much to the chagrin of the hubby) but I do have quite the stash of craft supplies which I can blame on my addiction to thrift store shopping which I love because I am such a frugal person (wow are you too seeing the viscous circle going on here?) . Anyway, this brings me into my next confession...I visited Hobby Lobby yesterday in hopes of finding some more supplies and lo and behold all of the artiste thread was on sale!! So the hoarder in me kind of took over and I bought almost one of every color of crochet thread in size #10 they had. So far I have just been using a Bernat #5 thread because that is what I found in my local Walmart store. I have also used some vintage J&P Coats knit-cro-sheen that I inherited from my grandma. I think if I stick with using the less expensive threads for a while until I learn a bit more I may be more likely to start more projects.
I have made up my mind, I am going to join the 25 motif challenge so I guess I better get busy and start posting pictures of my projects huh? Maybe tomorrow!
