|Our last thread bit of LAVA Diamond Head|
Superior Threads decided, in their ALL-knowing thread wisdom, to retire this entire LAVA line. At first, we were NOT happy to hear this. However, after consulting w/Superior and the very nice young lady over the phone to give us a 'comparable', Fatastico was the ultimate choice:
|Superior's NEW Fantastico|
Hopefully, will get to start quilting soon! Been consumed w/Fall cleaning/organizing. The first photo shows the result of much needed re-organization but, still have LOTS to do:
Still trying to come up with a fantastic solution to handle ALL our batting pieces and chunks - we save these for charitable projects and especially youth to use for practice quilting. IF you happen to have an amazing solution, besides 35 gal. leaf bags, Please let us know...Thanks!
And Please join me in saying a final Goodbye to one of our beloved Golden Bears/Retrievers. We think he was hit last Wednesday morning. It was really foggy and so...
|Baxter & Theo - two brothers who loved and wrestled w/each other EVERY day...|
A sad farewell to our Theo - you will be missed.
He loved laying in the sun on the landing outside my quilting studio. I will miss seeing him cuddle w/one-eyed cat and wrestling w/his brother. His brother is really feeling his loss right now. He howls every night at the same time of his final passing. Hopefully soon we'll find a new playmate for him...BUT, our Theo will be very hard to replace...
