I have never thought about keeping track of my thread usage.... I know I was going through alot of little spools then I saw these woman with cones and were using them with there machines?!?! Well, guess what I did - I am now using a cone too and my thread usage is not so noticable anymore!! I have not used a cone yet!! Although I have noticed it is smaller than it was!!
BUT, I also don't have lots of different colour and spools, so, hmmm, I see why your couting your threads....... One day I will be a quilter and not a piecer. At least, I hope so!!!
And yes, sewing 252 HST's is great progress!!! I have never made a string blk, but good for you getting those all done too!! I hope you have just as productive a week as the last one!!
