I am one block short of caught up with the "My Tweets" blocks! I've been working on satin stitching this weekend with my Ruby as well until I ran low on several thread colors.
I went to my LQS to get them and realized my Mettler silk finish 0900 didn't exist in her store which of course is the one I'm really out of. I would have to go to Papillion to another store as she has all of the threads Mettler makes. The last thing I want to do is travel 60 miles for a 3 dollar spool of thread. If I needed other stuff I could justify the trip. I figured I'd order online but the shipping for one/two spools of thread is more than the thread. I guess it's cheaper than using up all that gas though. I really despise Mettler thread but it's local and easy to get except for 0900. If I can, I get Aurifil. I love my white cone of thread from them. I think it's something like 5500 yards. Those are hard to find as well.
Here are the blocks:
This one needed redone as I messed up the first.
My LQS mentioned the bike trail is now open as the flooding has gone down. Guess who's going after this post? If you hear wheezing, a loud crash and some moaning, that'll be me down the ravine or tossed into the cornfields. Don't worry too much. I have my cell phone, emergency contact info, and my brain bucket.
edited: NOOOOO....... They open the trail for the first time today and as I loaded up everything I realized it was dark out where I was heading. It's RAINING over by the trail. The bike gods must truly hate me right now to do this to me. It's been fine all morning until I decide to load up everything and head out. Frickety Frack...
