Selecting Thread for a Hand Quilting Project

From past experience, I know that some threads will shred as I hand quilt. From the time that happened, I have always used hand quilting thread - until this quilt project I'm about to start on. I was unable to find Coats and Clark Double Duty Plus hand quilting thread in the color Juniper. So, I sucked in a deep breath and bought All Purpose Juniper. I'm fairly certain, machine quilting thread was the type that shredded on me when I was hand quilting for the first time. I will report how the All Purpose thread holds up after I quilt a considerable amount of stitches. I am really hopeful this will work because my old eyes cannot see the lighter neutral shades on that homespun fabric very well. And I don't want to use black on a Christmas quilt. I hope to have a report ready for you by the next time I post in two weeks.

Have a nice day!

Should You Make Homemade Christmas Gifts?

If you've spent quite a bit of money and several hours making a gift for someone who turns up their nose at homemade gifts, you'll understand why this question needs to be answered. Some people think homemade gifts are a way for crafters to get out of spending money. In reality, every crafter knows that supplies aren't cheap and the time spent creating something by hand means the recipient is getting something unique and carefully thought out.

However, some people don't like homemade gifts for one reason or another. Stick to the store bought stuff for these people who likely have only modern fashion in their homes. If someone on your list enjoys visiting craft shows, likes antique looking items, quilts or rag dolls, there's a good chance she will enjoy your homemade gifts.

Be sure you can make a gift that fits in well with the recipient's other collectibles and home d├ęcor. For example, primitive colonial doesn't fit in with shabby chic beach accents. For all the others who won't appreciate your hard work, save money and time by buying them a store bought gift.

Have a nice day!

New Tutorial Coming Soon

I didn't want you to think I had forgotten that I promised you a new tutorial. I promise I will have one ready as soon as I have time. I suddenly got busy with my VA work on Upwork last week and haven't had any time to sew. Please accept my apologies for the delay.

Have a nice day!
