Not all thread is created equal I discovered this week. I went to my local Patchwork shop looking for some Perle 8 to start hand quilting Caleb's quilt and they hardly had any?! In the end I decided to go with this cute two-tone linen. I enquired with the assistant if this would work being a novice - sure she replied there are no rules to quilting. That is my kind of message. I think it is a linen thread, quite thick and with no give in it at all. After a few days persisting and blisters worthy of a whittler I decided to go to a near by needle point shop, admit defeat and get some Perle. I was so annoyed that I had to undo a couple of big squares and wasted time but it is looking much better. So that is all the crafting I have done all week - hundreds of little stitches done and hundreds left to do. I would find it quite relaxing if I didn't have a million other things to do and if every night when I tuck in Caleb he didn't ask if I had finished yet.
More crafty goodness over at the Miss Marple house of Mystery - Kirsty's.
(How cute is that hedgehog fabric that Amy gave me. I so love it on the quilt. Thanks again Amy!)
