Since I had my embellisher machine, which was a surprise Christmas present last year from my husband, I can never seem to throw out any scraps of thread or fabric away.
I think I may have some kind of obsessed thread fetish!
I'm sure I may have said that before...sorry.
Even when I'm at school I check the bins after the textile classes to save thread.
You can imagine what the children quite happily chuck in the bin and I'm the one who is fishing it all out again!
I keep a lot of old trimmings and threads in my Marshall & Snelgrove vintage box.I believe this was an old department store in London's Oxford Street which closed in the 1960's.
Threads are exciting because they can become anything I want them to be, is that my fascination?
Even the smallest amount can transform from a twisted scrap to an image from my dreams .Here are some more threads that have become trees.
