So what happened yesterday? This is April -- the Easter Bunny has already come and gone, and we get this?
|A winter wonderland|
Thankfully, the roads and sidewalks are dry this morning, but we do NOT need this snow. The landscapers are supposed to come and open my pond this morning, and I was going to clean up the backyard (from the dogs), and well, I was out when it started to snow. So the yard didn't get cleared. Sigh..................
I'm happy to report that I was able to finish all the quilting on my Cherrywood Challenge with the Monday ladies chatting away to keep me amused. Yeah!!!!! I'm not going to show you what I did, but let's say that the new PROJECTION camera on the PFAFF creative icon 2 made it super easy!!! It still took hours to quilt it, but it would have taken days without the projection camera!
I went on a shopping spree to find something to add to the embellishments, and I was wandering around the store and couldn't find what I wanted. AHA -- I missed one aisle, and there it was, and it was the EXACT thing I was looking for. So I'll be using the projection system again today to help make some of the embellishments. Then a few more embellishments to create and put the binding on, and things are looking good to complete it on time. Fingers crossed.
I have other commitments that I'm working on, so it's another busy day. While I was at Fabricland, getting more thread --- OH --- I should mention that I had just enough thread to finish the quilting. Barely any left, but I needed to go for the embellishment stuff.
While there, I took pictures of all the cotton Guterman threads they sell. I'll compare this to the ones I have, and then I can pick up a few more colors.
This is my go-to thread for quilting on the domestic machine. Why? It comes in many colors, it's readily available to me, and it works really well on my sewing machine. If I'm using fancy threads in the top, I'll use this in the bobbin. And the price is right! Since the spools are small, you can store a lot in a small space. It works for me!!! I also use it for sewing the bindings onto quilts and topstitching.
