Our super lovely landlord gave me all this amazing thread the other day.
I was on my way to the sewing store to get some thread and she said "what colour do you need?" "navy blue" "let me go see if i have any... here, you can have these, I won't use them".
Besides being a giant bag of thread, the spools are all really neat, wooden and old. Some of them are odd, yet totally gorgeous colours as well.
Hooray for free stuff.
