Hi guys,

I inherited a big box of sewing and crafting goodness.  There's almost 50 spools of thread, all kinds of colors.  It would take me years to use it all but I want to use it now!

Any ideas?

Hi,

Thanks for the ideas!  I've set some of the prettier colors aside for machine embroidery and some kind of jewelery. 

I was thinking of doing one big project with the rest of the thread.  Something like the balloon/thread bowls.

I was just going to suggest that! Blow up some balloons, dip the threads in watered down glue, cover the balloon in it and let it dry. I've done this as a kid with white yarn, but I bet it would be spectacular with multicolor fine thread!
