When threading a needle, put the needle eye onto the thread, rather than the thread into the needle eye!

Sewers, is thread always wound onto the spool the same way? In other words, will the "leading edge" be the edge you cut or the edge that you hold as you unreel the thread?

A handy way to save work (and feel wonderfully tidy) when making beds is to put the duvet cover, sheet and one of the pillowcases into the remaining pillowcase in the set, and tuck it closed. That way, you have a couple of bundles of bed sets in your hot press, rather than fishing around for sheet, pillowcases and duvet cover at random.
