So how about if I sew for a while - get covered in thread bits - and then turn on my camera and chat about thread? LOL!
That's exactly what I did this week in response to some comments that were left on my blog about what kind of thread should be used for different projects.
Some readers (or maybe just one persistent reader) left a bunch of comments and I decided that it would be easiest to just explain it in a video.
So here's what I think about different kinds of sewing thread and what you would use them for.

Dress up a plain binder with an easy padded cover!
This DIY binder cover makes your binder so much better with a large outside pocket and two inside pockets for pens, pencils, or scissors.
I'm so excited to offer you my first machine embroidery design! As many of you know, I recently bought a Janome Memory Craft 14000 Sewing and Embroidery machine from SewingMachinesPlus.com and I love it (see my unboxing post here). I find myself torn between sewing and embroidery - I can't get enough of either!
Can you guess which project won the vote?
I'm so excited to share with you this new little clutch bag pattern! I've been loving a whole lot of little bags that I see on Pinterest - especially those that have a zipper compartment on the inside - so I decided to incorporate a little zipper pouch inside this little bag.
Sew a soft and cozy poncho wrap! This free sewing tutorial shows you how to make one using a lightweight throw blanket OR 2 yards of fabric.
I saw a sneak peek at the Black Friday ad for Jo-Anns Fabrics and guess what's going to be 75% off? FLEECE! Oh, I hope I don't get in trouble for telling you that. :)
So I thought I would share with you a sweet little pattern that I designed just for fleece fabric. It's a bolero jacket that folds together like fabric origami and is secured only with buttons. And since fleece doesn't fray, you can choose to finish the edges or not.
You can sew these really awesome plump tufted pillows with fringe all around the edges... and then you can pile them up (with the star I showed you how to make here) and make an adorable Christmas Tree!
