Threads have been essential to humans since the first garments were made for warmth and protection. Early sewing thread consisted of thin strips of animal hide that were used to stitch together larger pieces of hide and fur. The advanced civilizations brought many refinements in clothing and adornments, including the spinning and dying of threads. The Egyptians were skilled at making thread from plant fibers, the Phoenicians pioneered the use of berries and plant matter for dyed and the Chinese discovered the beauties of silk fibers spun as thread and made as cloth! Stay stunned for more of the story. I am off to dye some more threads! #history#threads#historyofthreads#egyptians#phoenicians#chinese#learn#neverstopexploring#neverstoplearning#fall#cozy
Once a week my three older kids and I sit down together to journal. It's something new we have started doing because of this very sweet book called @loomjournals It's been a mixture of silly and beautiful hearing their thoughts and feelings about experiences they have.
There's a very cute story in the beginning of the book about threads and experiences. Each experience we have is a different color thread and as we grow as a family those threads are woven together to create a beautiful tapestry. ❤️ My kids sat and listened intently to the entire story then wanted to talk about what color their "threads" are.
This @loomjournals has provide our very busy family with time to sit together and share our thoughts. It's been very very sweet and insightful.
Next week October 23rd @loomjournals is launching their kickstarter and will be offering early bird pricing for the first 48 hours. Moms! Go support the kickstarted and buy this for yourself. ❤️ You will love it. ❤️ .
