I never thought in million years having a very tiny crochet hook would prove to be an essential tool to my quilting. ？I don’；t need it too often， thank goodness， but when those rare moments occur the？Soft Touch Thread pick is a tool that I cannot imagine doing without.
As you will notice in the picture belowpersonalized gifts for dad， ？my latest project has a nice light background with some dark color accents incorporated into the design. As my imperfect world would have it， I have a dark pink thread under the top. My quilting came to a temporary halt. If you look closely， you can observe the light tinge of pink in between the quilting.accent pillow case baby canvas
Obviously that is not an intended flaw in my quilt， so what’；s a girl to do？ This is where the Soft Touch Thread pick came to the rescue. My pick and I began to do a bit of brain surgery on my project. It was a delicate procedure as I didn’；t want to pull the top of the fabric， but this surgeon did a fine job.
I carefully inserted the hook near the stray thread that had made its appearance. Grabbing the thread I very slowly pulled the unwanted piece out. Ta Da!
I wish I could say that the above illustration depicted the only place I will need to use this little tool， but somehow I think there are many more “；strays”； to be found.
