I finally found a reason to use all my metallic threads. I have been hanging on to them for quite some time. My late husband and I owned a commercial embroidery busisness manny moond ago and I am thinking that this is why I have a bunch of metallic thread. Came out not so bad. When I put my blocks all together, I do like it. I am designing my sashing, which will involve some snowflakes, somehow. Must keep with my theme. Looking forward to the next block.
So, I have been doing a lot of sewing these last couple of days. I find when I have a lot on my mind, or something bothers me, that I find it soothing an/or comforting to just sit and sew. The kind of sewing that does not require a lot of thinking. I have a quilt that I am making that has 72 appliqued blocks. It is farly simple applique, so I found myslef sitting at the machine for quite some time working on the blocks, trying to group by colors since it is scrappy, and rethreading the machine the least amount of times is best for my eyes.
