Today I received a spool of monofilament in the mail. It came from Qwiltylady of Spokane, WA. Now I can finish up my Bargello and not have to wait until tomorrow to go shopping! At least I got the basting ripped out of the rippled borders that I attempted to do last night, and can start fresh on quilting those. Oh!! Also, Jamie sent me a spool of gold and a spool of silver metallic thread. (Holidays are approaching, I'm sure I'll find a use for those. :wink: ) Thanks again Jamie, aka, Qwiltylady. Your generosity made my week! :thumbup: BTW, do I need special needles for metallics? It has been a long time.
