I got some sewing notions at an estate sale a few weeks ago. Some of the thread I found reminded me of spools Mom had when I was little. She saved every bit of thread, winding different threads onto spools and bobbins like this.
I found a few other bits of thread that takes this to a whole new level of thrift. Next is a rolled up bit of paper with thread wrapped around it, stored safely inside a plastic tube.
The next ones take the cake! Yes, that is a broken toothpick saving a bit of thread. Along with it is a tiny rolled scrap of fabric with thread wound around it. Some might find this disturbing but I find it very sweet! Ah, thrift!
