Thread the Needle Day?

threadday2.gif - 3.1 K

Did you know Thursday is Thread the Needle Day?

I had no idea. Google it. Thread the Needle Day is July 25.

Does this mean that there will be chocolate? I can hardly wait!

About threading needles, I've realized I can't eyeball the thread into the needle anymore so I use my lime green Clover Desk Needle Threader. I've gotten so used to it that threading needles without it is a challenge!


Here's how far I am with the Love Entwined BOM. Some of my poor triangles have hooks on their ends and I'm contemplating redoing them but most definitely only the pointy ends. I hate redoing anything so have to talk myself into it first. I've got 6 1/2 triangles left to stitch down and all the flower centers which are just glued down now. After that, the flowers and borders but I'm trying not to think too much about the border yet. One bite of the elephant at a time.

Yes, the blue fabric is growing on me!

Until next time, Mayleen

  1. I knew it! So glad you kept the blue!!! It's nice to be right (doesn't happen that often)!
    I like the "One bite of the elephant at a time" goal! I need to apply it to the strawberry patch, it's so full of weeds and grasses!!!!!

  5. I love your colours especially the blue! I have a large stash of blues, but never use them! I have tried really hard to incorporate them into my LE

  7. Somehow I knew you'd catch up with me and hold me accountable but I was hoping you were on a long vacation, LOL! Phebe is on my design wall less than 5 feet from my sewing machine watching every move I make. Kind of hard to ignore her!

  8. Great compass! Love it all, even with the hooks on the piramids. Don't like to sew backwards too.. So I leave some mistakes, to make the quilt more me... LOL

  11. Your appliqué, as always, is so pretty. But making points is one of several reasons I don't enjoy appliqué, a conclusion I finally came to after many years of hand appliqué! I've seen points demonstrated many times, and still can't make them better than blunt-nosed. You have much more patience than I do. Thanks for the tidbit about Thread the Needle Day. Who knew? But an even bigger question is, "Who comes up with these things?!"

  12. The blue is lovely, it really complements the fabrics you chose for the compass.
