Who says a defective washer is a BAD thing?

I actually attribute my productiveness this weekend to our aging and defective Kenmore! You see, it's decided that it wants to stick during the first spin cycle and spin and spin and spin and not proceed to the next cycle! Sooooooooo...you either have to actually REMEMBER to go downstairs after about 25 minutes and manually move the thing to the next cycle, which tends to be a problem for me lately...the remembering part anyway.....OR you can choose to babysit the washer for 25 minutes. Now the PLUS side is that my sewing room is right by the laundry room! So this weekend, I chose to babysit the washer each time I started a load! I actually got an entire quilt cut out and this evening finished sewing all of my strip sets! It's a great windmill pattern using all Kaffe Fasset prints and stripes! YUM! When I have some blocks put together, I'll post a pic.

I also did venture upstairs this weekend and actually started a new project (like I NEEDED to do that!). But I couldn't HELP it! It's so darn fun starting stuff! And this one I will actually have a hard time putting down until it's finished! I started the Frances Eden sampler by Handwork. LOVE this thing! I'm using 32ct antique ivory linen and the charted DMC threads and the colors are just wowing me! Here's my progress since Friday...



Well, back to reality tomorrow that is 8 to 5. Until next time....keep the needles threaded!

Another hobby is a GOOD thing! Right?

I've decided to start and REGULARLY MAINTAIN a blog! And since I am a Threadhead in the ultimate sense of the word....what better title than Threadheads Unite! I would love to hear from other thread-obsessed people out there that love to Quilt, Cross Stitch, Knit, Needlepoint, etc! Those have been my obsession as long as I can remember. I remember being 7 years old and so darn excited when I got my pot holder weaving loom for Christmas! It was the BEST gift EVER! Can you relate? Those great colorful potholders that adorned mom's kitchen...even though they probably weren't her first choice in kitchen decor! Aaaaaah.....yes......the obession began early! What's your story? Stay tuned for updates on projects I'm working on and "OTHER" exciting ventures I plan to embark on! You won't want to miss it!
