Preparations Begin

How do you keep your threads?  After joining the Crazy Quilt Journal project, I have decided I need some new sewing pretties.  In my embroidery, I use a lot of silk thread -- so it seems a new silk thread wallet is needed.  These little wallets or cases store your silk thread while you are working and keep them in a clean, snag-free and easy to access manner.  In my typical fashion, I haven't really thought this through.  I do know that I want to have rings to keep the clipped skeins sorted, and I do need pockets for unused skeins. 

So, flying by the seat of my pants, I put together an 8 x 8 inch crazy quilt square in french blues, creams and golds, to begin constructing the outer cover.  (Sorry, the picture below was taken inside -- and household lights don't lend themselves to good color translation).

I will keep you posted as the piece progresses!
