Threads I used for "Occasional 3"

I love quilting with lots and lots of very different threads - and Occasional 3 got a lot of different threads! here you see them all in a box:
Wenn ich quilte, dann am liebsten mit ganz vielen ganz verschiedenen Garnen - und Occasional 3 war da keine Ausnahme! Jede Menge verschiedene Garne, hier sind sie alle in einer Zigarrenschachtel zu sehen.

And these are the "snip-off" pieces of thread I accumulated while I quilted. I have the slight idea of using them all together - with the help of my embellisher. Which needs to see the light of day anyway !
Und das sind die abgeschnittenen Garnreste, die sich während des Quiltens so angesammelt haben. Ich denke darüber nach, sie alle zusammen zu benutzen - und zwar unter der Filzmaschine. Die eh mal wieder zum Einsatz kommen sollte ;-))

For quite awhile I saved threads to use with my embellisher, and then when I did my sewing room re-design, I finally threw them out!

Maybe your finished piece will inspire me to start saving mine again... I rarely use my embellisher so I'd be glad to see what you do! :)

Go on, get the embellisher out. You know you want to:)

I think of this as Quilters Jelly, but I don't know where the term came from. I have *loads* but no embellisher -I am now waiting for you to inspire me to borrow one!!!
