I rarely get sick so I guess I was due for this. I've been battling the typical winter stuff that turned into bronchitis, for the past 2 1/2 weeks, trying to get some things done on better days. I'm on my 4th box of "Puffs" (200 tissues per box) so my poor little nose is so red and sore. I think I could be a contender to pull Santa's sleigh ( - :
I've been trying to quilt on my "Enchanted Village" piece as I promised it for the teacher's exhibit at Mid-Atlantic this February where I'll be teaching. I figured this commitment would force me to finish. I've always loved using the rayon threads for decorative work (top row) but couldn't get them in my local quilt shop. They've switched to polyester (bottom row) for its strength and ease of use. They had some wonderful colors and not wanting to hunt down the rayon, I decided to give it a try. It worked fine but didn't have as much of a surface presence as the rayon which is more loosely twisted. I liked working with it but think I still prefer the rayon.
Hope you're having a good day.
