    This teaches me NOT to clean house!! UGH!!

    So I've been feeling poorly but today feel better so I decide to do a little house cleaning. I was using my little Shark lite vac and was vacuuming around my stack of thread boxes...well I had some spools sitting on top of the boxes that I had recently used but not put up yet. Yep, the vacuum caught a couple of the loose dangling threads and I ended up with about 15 spools jumping like jumping beans on the floor with lots of thread wrapped around the vacuum bar!!!!!! So now I sit and cut all the thread off the bar!!!!

    This will teach me to just let the house cleaning go, right? LOL

    That's what cleaning will get you into. Quilting time consumed by cutting threads.

    Thank you for reminding me of the dangers. Vacuuming the studio was on the agenda for tonight.....but I think it might not be worthwhile after all. I'll fondle fabric instead!

    Yup, picture in my head of all those threads jumping around gave me a good chuckle as well. I'll put cleaning back on the bottom of the "todo" list!
