If I'm using old thread, I'm know to triple reinforce my stitches, like for buttons or shrink the stitch length on my machine so there's more stitches per inch than normal.  I've only had one spool so badly deteriorated I could break it by snapping it with my fingers, everything else seems to have held up well.

Geez, it's barely over halfway thru Monday at work and I'm already over being here Roll Eyes  LOL!  I've got projects on the brain, and lately my weekends are eaten up by non-crafty activities and outings so I'm getting very frustrated with not getting any projects done except a few tiny things or filling boxes of supplies for easy swaps...I just wanna take off right now and go home to my sewing machine!

Have three more 'neck cozies' done, all from stash yarn. I have four more skeins of the green yarn left to destash and enough of the black/blue/purple mix for two more scarves. Cheesy

I'm wearing the last one now and am going to keep it for myself. I have a box of the scarves started to donate once it gets full.

Thanks! It is really fun and goes fast. I can make one in one night and that includes warping the loom to start! It takes a bit longer if I end up with a kitty helper  Cheesy

I swear black cats are the most inquisitive!  My boy slows me down because he needs to see whatever I am doing...he also steals things like my needles or yarn...I would crochet and knit much faster if he were not around, but it would not be as much fun and joy! Cheesy

Adorable Toeheads!!! =]  great work on those, too!

love the woven scarves...and the last one(yours) is so pretty! Love the colors.  You are fast w/the looms, even w/kitty help!  Cheesy

I was hoping to use most of the threads on little projects, crafty items to keep learning new sewing things.  I can also see making up some potholders and string projects that I can use newer threads and quilt over the sewing.  Maybe some yo-yos, etc.  I do have several spools just for buttonholes and heavier guage needs.  There is one (wooden) spool w/pink silk on it.  Older spools like that I'll keep 'as is' just because it is 'history' of the craft.  What folks did w/all the neato threads is really amazing to me! =]  What folks do here w/threads is just as amazing to me, too!

Finished w/new little baby blanket today.  Hate being stuck in town w/nothing to keep fingers busy.  Looking for new portable UFO to finish... Smiley

My altime favorite bag to start with is the Jordy bag, the tute is on Craftster, it is extremely versatile, I have made a ton, all shapes, sizes and colours. Even my dad has one for shopping.
But this one that you posted the link to also took my fancy,
