Have you ever bought clothing items that had to have tons of loose threads snipped off before they looked wear worthy? To me, trimming threads as I go is a no-brainer. I've just always done it. (that I can remember anyway. No asking my Mom if that's really true!) But I have had people ask me to finish something they have started and never finished and I know that not everyone just always snips threads as they go!! It makes a MUCH neater, tidier finished product when your thread cutting has taken place all along the way. If you don't practice this I suggest you start! It just adds a great tough of professionalism to your finished project when there are not little threads hanging on here and there.
And just in keeping with the picture I added to this post, my husband always says - 'measure twice, cut once.' This can apply to sewing as well as woodworking:)
Happy Thursday, enjoy the wonderful weather!
