Why oh why do some of the threads have food names? It is so hard to tat and not think of luscious caramel apples when the thread name keeps popping into my head! I think I've gained weight this week just thinking about the color name! To make matters worse, I chose to use my Blackberry shuttle from LaCossette. I LOVE blackberries! Let's just say it's been a mouth-watering week!
Daughter Joanne has been visiting from Minnesota this week. She's been spring cleaning my house and cleaning my carpets. Lucky me! Today we took a break from household chores and went quilt fabric shopping with my sister-in-law. Joanne is going to make a quilt for her. I was very good and did not buy one piece of fabric. However, I did find some more beautiful threads that just might be nice for tatting!
These are YLI machine quilting threads. The colors from left to right are Danube Blues, Alaskan Twilight, Kyoto Garden, Nordic Fjord, and Vineyard. How could I pass up names like that? Let me know if you'd like some samples. Be quick, though... I only have 500 yards of each color. ; )
I also treated myself to this book, Cathedral Window Quilts. I love the Cathedral Window pattern, and I have a beautiful section that my mom made. She gave up making the entire quilt, and gave a nice big section to my sister Janet and to me. I've been meaning to start using up my scrap fabrics. Who knows... maybe I'll be inspired! Or, maybe I'll just enjoy reading and looking at the pictures!
