Lazy, Desperate, Stubborn, Economical, Genius

I feel like that’s the best way to describe the following photo.  The back story: I was running out of black thread and still had many things to make needing black thread.  I kept thinking “I should buy thread” and either forgetting or just downright deciding I just didn’t want to.  Then I decided I actually had plenty of black thread laying around, and I didn’t need to buy any.  But it’s serger thread (cone thread).  Cone thread tends to require a special apparatus to use with a regular sewing machine.


But I started thinking to myself that my serger is but one giant cone thread holder.  Silly DK.  I’m sure this is incredibly obvious to many sewers, but it seemed like such a fantastic idea to me.

And I’m happy to say it worked like a complete and utter charm.  Which means I will be using serger thread as much as possible from here on out.

It is also somewhat bittersweet for me to report that this will very likely be the last photo of my darling Janome.  After years of pining, I decided it was finally time to upgrade.  I will unveil the new guy after the move, most likely.  Stay tuned!

    Thank you kindly. It’s really the only way I got through my Christmas presents with any amount of sanity.
