A little sewing TIP

 ..you know those pesty little dark threads that love to hang out it inside the quilt and look like a varicose vein! 
 ...well..if you take a 14/0.75MM crochet hook, you can slip it under the fabric...
...like shown here.  Then hook on to that vein....
...and pull that pesty thread out!  Now if only we could do that to our own pesty veins!

Oh my goodness this is genius! I am just quilting my all solids quilt and noticed some orange thread showing through my white. I will have to check and see if I have that size crochet hook, but if not that is definitely worth the purchase. Thank you for the tip!

I'll poke a needle in and bring them up that way too:)
