Thread!!! But no Trip, sigh.

I didn't get to go to Ohio, there was some freezing rain that morning, so I decided to stay home. Was really sorry to miss the kids, but I will see them again soon.

Spent the weekend quilting and binding 3 more Heartstrings quilts. They are washed and dried and ready to donate to the Guardian ad Litem office in Asheville. I'll take pictures and show you.

I did try a new thread (to me) while quilting these out. It is Signature thread, 100% Long Staple Cotton 3000/yds, for 6.95 a cone. I didn't have to change any settings or tension when changing from Aurifil to the Signature, and the price is sooo much lower. I have found a new thread for my retirement.

They have a lot of colors too, and for that price, I plan to try to get them all, one or two at a time, lol.

Go to KenQuilt to see the selection.

Today we're going to cash out all of our change and go to the casino in Cherokee. Then after about a half hour (that's how long it takes us to lose out money...) we will go check out the new visitors center and hike a trail for our daily walk. Should be a good day.

Later,
WilmaNC

I would be afraid to drive in freezing rain too. Safe is better than sorry. I love the thread site and bookmarked. I use the longarm thread on my domestic machine that I quilt with and it does nicely. Right now trying the new line from Connecting Threads - Quilter's Pro - and very happy with it - and lots of colors, too. Always fun to try new threads that are successful.
