The Tradition


Implements at the ready . . .

I was intrigued by the way the thread looked and took pictures of needles and thread but not of the actual stringing so had to go to the archives (below) to explain the context. 

My blog is also posted on my Facebook page -- where Helen left this great comment: You know I'm a fan when one of my Christmas traditions is reading about Vicki's stringing of popcorn and cranberries.

Made me grin, Helen!

I like the beers and the ginger cookies (?) - looks like a party! Hope the knee feeling good and new!

Those threads are so lively! What a wonderful ritual. I've learned something new and one day would love to try cranberry threading myself (but I'll have to wait until winter comes to the southern hemisphere).

That's a good tradition to keep alive.

Love that first photo ... something ethereal about it, as if it is really a remnant 'ghost of christmas past' visiting...

I've never threaded popcorn but it sounds so appealing. What do you use as the thread?
