That looks awesome! Polyester seems like a daunting fabric choice to try to sew with. Here's hoping Madrid keeps up their no losing streak at the very least, but I'm hoping for a win!

As a knitter and needlecrafter AND an employee of a major airlines I can answer this perfectly for any Americans who have the same question!

There are no problems with needles. Scissors are the one thing you have to watch out for. If they are metal they can be no longer than 4 inches, and can be pointed. If longer than 4 inches they may NOT be carried on.

As a side note there are NO restrictions on knitting or crochet needles. Any hassle should have a supervisor requested for a review of their rules on the issue to get past any problems that might occur with individual agents.

I actually had someone try to take my old scissors I was using from a cheapo sewing kit. They were plastic, blunt and didn't even cut good! I was 12 or something and threw a fit so they let me take them on.

My Woman bought me the little DMC thread winder because she used to be the little manual labor for her grandmother who did embroidery. She paid all of 1.50 for it and I don't even think I got that much value from it. XD I am semi anal in the winding of them now, and it just wasn't making the thread spread out evenly! How was I going to ensure they didn't take up more space than needed in the storage boxes? My birthday is coming up and I may just ask for gift cards so I can make myself some pretty boxes like you have!

I understand what you mean about it being relaxing and quick. I went through my 30 or so in no time. I think I am going to like this way of organization.

I saw both of the DMC ways to organize everything, the bobbins and the longer thread holders and I was honestly looking between them for 5 minutes. XD My Joann's trips can never be simple. I thought the bobbins would be a bit nicer just because they are more compact and now that I see your pretty box AGFH I think I am going to try that one. It seems to hold more than the box for the stitch bow could. Plus the bows are actually set up t hold the little piece of paper that says the number on the thread, and I am quite sure I would lose them.

The only problem I will have now is to keep myself from buying at least one of every thread because they're all so pretty!

So I have tried many types of crafts and still find myself coming back to my love of needleworks. I have done cross stitching kits so everything all comes in the general amount that you need and when you finish it's not a lot so there's no need to keep it.

I am going to start on a project of my own where I buy everything so now I have no idea what to do with my thread or what to do with it when I'm done.

What kind of organization do you guys use to keep track of thread during and after a project? I want to start off kind of being set up or a few years down the road I will have a giant box full of random thread loose everywhere. XD

My eagle is done! Well it's been done for a while but work had training and then I had a mini vacation so here it is:

I finished him on the 24th of May. I've started on the flag. Finished the stars and I'm about 1/2 way done with the Union. Cheesy

oh, I know how you feel. I've been with my partner for going on 3 years now. I love cross stitching so I decided to do this eagle kit:

for her mom for Birthday. Then Mother's Day. Christmas. Birthday. Mother's Day. Christmas. I know I won't make it for her birthday, in 2 weeks, or mother's day this year but I'm feeling crafty vibes so I am going to shoot for Christmas.
What I have done as of 1 month ago:

I'm almost done with the 2nd wing but I have to keep telling myself I have to finish this before I can start my next project. X.x
