- Keep a little jar beside you as you sew.
- Every time you finish a thread, toss the bit into the jar, saying something to the effect of "Bless this house. Protect all within from harm and hardship."
- When the jar is full, seal the blessings within by laying one protective leaf or root on top. (For example: bay laurel leaf, angelica root, bethroot, or wormwood)
- Close the jar tightly and store it near the top of the house, in the attic, or hang it from the rafters.
