Thread & Memory

I am almost truly done with "Being Negative". Got Ol' Singer to work and everything, go fig. I realized I didn't have any lavendar thread and it would be a perfect color for a part. I went through my threads and there was my great-grandmother's little spool sitting there. I'll admit I was a little apprehensive. I keep it in there as a momento as we were very very close, but I figured she'd rather that I used it.

So I did.

And I think the color turned out beautifully. As I was sewing with it, I felt so good as I couldn't help but think that it was her favorite color and I was using the exact thread she had used herself. I think it was meant to be.
