I got my order of threads from Connecting Threads the day I needed black thread for the Spools quilt. What serendipity!
I ordered several cones and added several spools to get the free shopping. I "think" I am ahead........
So I got my Avante all threaded up and commenced to quilting. I still had some issue with the top thread breaking. But I got it completed. I really love the way the paisley swirls look in the dark areas as well as on the spools.
Today I went out and spent Frank's money on two new shirts. Blouses, really.
Trying on some dresses, which is what I went out in the first place, I decided I needed to try harder on my diet. When I was choosing something to wear to the funeral, I realized I really didn't have fancy clothes to wear. So I decided to get a dress that would transcend types of occasions and be useful for a night out on the town.
Now it needs a trimming and a binding!
The funeral on Monday was that of Andrew's Grandmother. She is like my mother, the last of her generation. It closes a door to the past that a sad part of our lives.
The church was beautiful with Roman columns, travertine tile and vaulting arches. And yes, I was in a church and neither me nor the church exploded!
