Getting the Thread Out
As I prepare for setting up the Artfabrik booth at the Greater Chicago Quilt Festival this week, I am confronted with a pile of thread skeins waiting to be sorted. They remind me of my favorite movie characters: so pretty, so colorful, and so messed up.

It may take several cups of tea, but soon the thread will be sorted, placed on pegs, and ready for sale. Included is my favorite size for hand stitching, Size 8. Perfect for those fine details that are so important on a house fa├žade like that found on Housing Department #17 below. (Sorry, this little quilt is sold. But other neighborhoods are available at my New Quilts page.)
