6 days....wooo!

And only 4 more days of working at the real job. One Saturday at the shop. A few more sleeps. And then the fun begins!! Woo hoo!! ***

Tonight, I quilted another of Regina's quilts. I used an Essentials by Connecting Threads thread on the top. I had bobbin issues again. I am seriously thinking that the Essentials thread is just crap! Sometimes it works and is great. Sometimes, I spend 3+ hours quilting a lap quilt. Just ridiculous. The quilt looks great though! Although now that it is off the frame, I have found some eyelashing on the back. :(

I have been keeping track of the threads that I use, but I can't seem to figure out the exact combination that works wonderfully!

*** Are you sick of hearing about the retreat and the weekend of fun yet?

I'm definately not tired of hearing about retreat! It's all I can talk about. This time next week we'll be shop hopping! The quilting looks great, but I'm with you I don't like essentials thread. I had one spool and i'll never use it again. Just not worth it to me.

The only time I had real thread trouble, it was with Essential...I don't plan to buy it again...it has also given me a few problems in my Janome! Not sick of hearing about retreat at all...counting down the days!

What retreat?



ROTFL.....



Wait until after the retreat and you're sick of US!


I'm not a fan of the Essential thread either, too much lint and it breaks too easily. I'm still doing the trial and error thing with thread, trying to figure out which one I like the best.

See you soon!
