Have you ever given any thought to cleaning up your digital workspace? You can spend hours reorganizing folders and categorizing designs but sometimes it’s best to start on the Perfect Embroidery Pro, My Block Piecer or My Quilt Embellisher screen your currently working in. What is there to clean up? The thread chips at the bottom of the window. Sounds silly, right? Well, removing the excess thread chips at the bottom of the screen helps me focus. Let me show you what I mean.
I dragged one of December’s free designs onto the workspace. Notice the 11 color chips in the thread tray. The design is only three colors so I find all of those excess chips to be distracting, unnecessary clutter.
I’m going to change the colors to reflect a warm, tropical climate (like the one Stitching Sisters are going to enjoy on our February 2016 cruise – join us!) First, click on a chip to see the thread palette.
Once you set this brand, the palette will always default to that brand although you can reset it anytime you’d like. Simplifying the thread tray makes it easy to see what threads I need to collect from stash of thread. It’s a simple step that points you into the direction of a clean, efficient workspace.
