My Invisible Thread Is Invisible

Updated: Aug 26, 2022

My invisible thread is invisible

I don't often use invisible thread and yet I have a huge cone of it. I mean huge! I used it on a customer quilt a few months back and it looked great. I forgot how nice it sews. This week I am working on a customer quilt and the invisible thread would be just the ticket. That is if I could find the darn thing. I am the only person who works in my space so I cannot blame this on my husband. This is me losing it. I am hoping by the time I finish this blog I will have found it. I will keep you apprised.

Emily & Brad

I have had a few questions from my readers regarding Emily and Brad, the backyard squirrels. They are both tearing up my bird feeders at a miraculous speed. I am a bit concerned about Emily. She seems to have experienced some health problems. I watched her last week and it looked as if her hips had grown enormously. On a closer look, most of the hair on her upper body was gone which made her hips look huge. Not sure if she hit an electric socket and burned it off or if she has some sort of disease. She is remarkably busy so I guess it hasn't bothered her much. But she sure looks weird. I wish I could include a picture but my camera lens doesn't capture her that far from my dining room table and I am sure not going to run outside and start clicking away. It's been 20 to 30 below here for the past few weeks. When it isn't cold we get another 5 to ten inches of snow. Minnesota sure makes you enjoy the indoors.


My friend told me she was bored. She is my age and retired. I can't believe how when given the freedom to do pretty much what you want at any time you could be bored. My mind is usually racing with all of the things I want to accomplish in a week. Honest, at this time I am pretty much housebound. Truly, it's just better to stay inside. Lucky for me, Dennis does a great deal of cooking and I still can't find time to do all of the things I want to do. I thought I would record what my space looks like at the beginning of the week and the projects that I attack during the week.
