Thread, Glorious Thread!

No one can accuse me of being afraid of color (but one could accuse me of being addicted to it).  Since I discovered Atlanta Thread, my thread stash is almost as big as my fabric stash :).  I love to use thread to add a zing or a subtle surprise.  It makes sewing infinitely more fun.
So which did I pick for this organizer?  Gutterman No. 16, my current fav (a pinky orangy red, 2nd from right).  (The green herringbone fabric came from Fabric Factory, the Paula Prass (of Michael Miller Fabrics) print is Par Avion and came from Little Cherubs.)

OOOh - if I was much, much closer! - I would be round to borrow a yard of that turqoise/blue thread! I have just bought a linen tunic with lace and fabric frill and given it a wash - only to find the lace wasn't sewn properly and it's started to fray the linen (thankfully under frill)I have dozens of threads but nothing which match!Isn't that just the way...
