This past year, I was doing sooo much sewing that I did something a little crazy…
I saved all my empty spools of thread for AN ENTIRE YEAR! I started at the beginning of November of last year and collected my last empty spool last week. Here’s the collection:
That’s right! If you didn’t already count for yourself, that’s 13 large and 9 small empty Mettler thread spools. And that doesn’t even count the other threads I’ve bought this year and haven’t emptied yet. Isn’t that crazy? That’s lots and lots of sewing for one year!
I know it’s a bit crazy to have saved that many spools over a year, but I knew if I didn’t save them all I wouldn’t have kept track. I wanted to see just how much sewing I did over one whole year. It was amazing to find out I used 8,587 yards of thread this year alone!! I’m so happy that the year of saving is up too because those spools were taking up so much room. Haha! It’s so nice to have recycled them all and have them out of my sewing area.
I think it’s needless to say, but I’m so ready for another amazing year filled with lots and lots of sewing!
