I have been working on my super secret FAB challenge project off and on most of the week, prepping applique mostly. The best part of the sewing weekend was that I was chatting with most of the FABS as I worked. It is a bit like having your own cyber retreat but we were all working on our own projects and yakking in between. By last evening, I had finished basting my sectioning down to the base.
Before I called it quits for the night I wound the appropriate colored bobbins. Since two of the small spools had already been used on previous project, I was almost out of thread by the time I wound the bobbin. I know from a Wal-mart run yesterday that I am not apt to find what I need in the fabric department as their thread case is about half the size it used to be----very little selection there. If I have to use something else, I would rather know it at the beginning and make the switch. I’ll hit the two spots locally that MAY have what I need tomorrow when the shops are all open. There are times that I miss the availability of supplies that I had in central Illinois. How very spoiled I was having fabric stores and quilt shops all in the same town. Hancock’s left over a year ago and other nearby places have closed too. I do NOT want to have to go Birmingham or Douglasville, GA just to find matching thread, for Pete’s sake! I have till the end of the month to get my project in the mail to Ms. Norma so it won’t hurt to take the day off.
Well, with no other quilty content that I can share, I’ll close for now. I hope you have had an enjoyable day at your house. I sure have.
