I have a very small stash of vintage thread that was once my mother’s. I’m ambivilent about using it because I don’t want to waste it on frivilous projects. Except that on Saturday I picked up a quilt that I had machine quilted by the kind Carol at Elly’s Sheared Sheep. I’ll be using this lovely eggplant thread to finish this quilt.
I’ll be working on the binding this week . . . in the air conditioning . . . since the region where I live is in a heatwave and the humidity is supposedly higher than the Amazon jungle. I love love love the heat and humidity — but not the exasperated looks from salesclerks when I respond to their common and usually negatively tinged remarks about the weather.
Anyhoo, I won’t be sewing the binding outside, though I’m sure I’ll be doing a bit of embroidery and button attaching on the deck later this week.
