Thread Conditioners

Posted on August 9, 2013 at 10:37pm 9 Comments

Has any one tried the thread conditioner called "Thread Heaven"? If so does it really work like they say it does? Thanks for any information on this product.

Yeah...Swing weather is here!

We had some really nice weather today. It is supposed to be nice all week. I heard my swing calling me. So I went outside to enjoy the fresh air while I sat on my swing. Looking forward to enjoying more nice weather while I sit on my swing.

UFO with a Silver Lining

Posted on February 7, 2012 at 3:27pm 7 Comments

On my page is a picture of my finished UFO, it is still waiting to be quilted.(It has the same title as this blog post) Originally it was destined to remain a UFO for the rest of its life.  But someone on QWU has given me the courage and inspiration to finish it. Now that I have, I am so VERY glad. The "Silver Lining" is right on the heels of finishing the piecing I found the perfect fabric for the blue. So I bought what I needed of the blue so that later in the future I can make another by…

Between chain store fabrics and quilt shop fabrics which one fades the quickest when exposed to constant sunlight?

She hand pieced all the flowers; I read that it is possible to machine piece the hexies and I tried that but found it very slow so I ended up hand piecing the rest of the top and then machine quilted it.

Thank you Bonnie, for the kind comment on my Grandmother's Flower Garden quilt.  It was a "rescue".  My friend found all the flowers put together by hand in a box when cleaning out a closet after her mother-in-law's death.  Only about a row and a half were already assembled and a few more had part of the ivory sashing.  She asked me to put it together for her.  Many, many, many hours later it is finished.  I had over 100 hours just piecing the top and I lost count after that.  It was a real learning opportunity and I like to think that the dear lady who started it is happy with how it came out.

Hi Bonnie, Well we have had no rain her for about a month,,we are extremely dry - the tree's are loosing their leaves,,and they are all on the ground...everything is wilted. Some of the plants that we didn't mulch, I still have to water them, almost every day.!

We have our first cucumber, and our yellow squash, and string beans. cooked them on the grill,,Oh so good. 

Also with my job, They had me picking up heavy containers of tea, and coffee pots, and having to scoop up ice....that's what I think hurt my Elbow and my elbow is killing me,,I was lifting way too much and now I can't do anything..Tennis Elbow.! My shoulder and arms are hurting too...I guess I have to take it easy...My body isn't made for all this lifting. I didn't do anything of the lifting on Sunday and I felt much better.

Off to get some dishes done and then do some sewing...

Hi Bonnie, Well we got one heck of a storm yesterday, thunder and lightening. It poured out most of the night....the thunder was really loud. the grass will be really green now..! I almost thought we had hail the way it sounded. Well today is clean up then go to orientation at 2pm...We planted beans last night, and zucchini. Hopefully with DH coming home early 6pm..we may get the rest of the garden planted and the rest of the bushes we bought...Not that I know where we will put them...but that will be the challenge for the evening..

Enjoy your Spring...

Hi Bonnie,,,I did end up getting a job...over at "Hardee's"

I went back there to ask if they had any openings and they did.! So she hired me for 5 hrs a day, for 4 days,,, Thursday,  Friday's Saturdays, and Sundays, but not every Sunday,,,From 8AM-1pm,,,so nice hours and a few hours so I can get something extra too..

We are having a storm at the moment,,a little rain and it is getting chilly...but the weather will be back up in the 70* once again then we'll be hot.

We had a lady come to our guild,  checking out the older quilts the ladies brought in,,one was made of all hexies,, made me think of you...it was really pretty,

Well I got to get off of here,,storm is getting worse...talk to you later on.

Good afternoon Bonnie,! My Dh works in a furniture store,, he is the manager for Astro-Holdings,,,Inside of Roses Dept. store...

Well I may have news later on tomorrow.! I have another interview, yesterday it was with food Lion, a grocery store, but,,,this time with ~ Hardee's..I may be a crew member...or a hostess..I will find out tomorrow afternoon....Please pray all goes well,,it is only 20 hrs. of so,,but it will be better I don't stay home so much...Depression is getting a hold of me again.

My classes are going along great,,,I am teaching them about triangles....they aren't so sure about them...Jill one of the girls are really excited about quilting....I may do a table runner so she can see what a whole quilt is looking like..or at last explain what the bigger one will look like.

hope your weather is getting warmer,,,we had 80* yesterday,,today is cooler and wet...

Have a great day................

Hi Bonnie, We have been working on the outside of the house...in the garden and in the yard, the weather has been so warm we are filling in all the holes in the lawn and filling up the surrounding areas from the fruit trees. We bought a Clematis, a Jackmanii, in the back of the house. And a  Trumpet vine, to put around the front of the house. Flowers need to be here,, no color.!

No quilting as it is way too warm out. But I am still teaching and loving every minute of it.

I need to get another cut of tea in me so I can wake up..Have a great day!
