Today is Columbus Day and if you work for a bank (like I do), it's a holiday! It's one of those holidays when it seems like everyone else is working. I spent my day doing odd things around the house, a few loads of laundry, errands, and some minor organization. That gave me a few hours this afternoon to work on my next quilting project. I've got everything cut out (Gobble Gobble is the fabric line) and ready for assembly. I'm not sure I'll get much chance to work on this next weekend or during the week but I'll try and fit a bit in when I can. I wish I had a three day weekend every weekend. Wouldn't that be wonderful?
One of the errands I ran was to pick up some silk thread for one of the two stitching projects I plan on starting soon. Jill from Azalea House is out of town but she left it for me to pick up. This stuff is so soft. It's Belle Soie, a hand dyed thread. Delish!
I'm going to have to make a color change though. The picture above is two skeins of thread. Two different colorways! Don't they look very similar? Sometimes that happens with hand dyed. It's not an exact science and that is one of the things I like about it!
