THANK YOU to all who visited to check out the A – to – Zed thread list. Your comments and emails helped me to grow the list significantly. (Of course, now the shopping will ensue). But I digress…
It is time to award my little thread bundle of thanks. I assigned numbers straight down the comments list and then googled “free random number draw.” This is what I came up with:

Number two is the lucky number of Miss Ethel. Congratulations my dear. I will be sending off a collection of assorted threads for your to experiment with.
To everyone else:
I wish I could at least award you the home game of Threadopoly… but alas, I have not been able to convince investors of just what a smash hit it would be!
We might tart up (*) a thimble for a nod to tradition, but then there could be: The Scissors, King Cone, Lil’ Bobbin, Mac The (seam)Ripper, Pokey Tomato (the Pin Cushion)…. (and other assorted little hooligals game pieces)
Of course, instead of 4 railroads, we might have Quilt Shops, and instead of “Go” there is the Houston Quilt Festival (Except, I think that you spend $200 with each passing!). Houses and hotels become sewing machines and sergers. Buying a property consists of completing a technique or trying a thread.
This could be great fun on a retreat weekend, especially after Mr. Champagne bottle makes an appearance or two or three… (What? Isn’t he in everyone’s sewing kit?)
Keep it Fun & Happy Sewing
* Tart Up- The Act of ‘Arting Up’; To Art up an object is to give it one’s own creative spin. Anything from serious, capital ‘A’ art to low-brow, red lipstick tarting is acceptable.
