News Flash and Threads
I tried to send this last evening, but the connection kept on timing out and it isn't too good today either. Who was a busy bee yesterday then! This is the middle section of Blue Jean Windows - only another 12 sections to do. Colours haven't come out very well have they. I was on a roll yesterday and was up until 12.30 am pining and machining seams so today am exhausted! I'm running out of blue thread and other bits and pieces so am hoping to persuade DH to go into Perigueux for a shop. Tonya - question. On the next project I want to use a different type of thread. - A bit thicker and contrasting colours to the background so it will have to stand out. I have read your "Threads, Threads & Threads" article on Quiltville.com and am at a bit of a loss re "perle" thread. Is it the same stuff that they use for crocheting in France and is sold in rolls, rather than reels. Am with you on embroidery thread, which presumably you have to buy by the lorry load if you are doing a bit project (comme moi!) LOL and yes I can see it would be a devil to thread. My eyesight is bad enough as it is without needing a magnifying glass to thread a needle! Mind you, I tend to use very thin darning needles which have big eyes Must get going.
