I have found this a great way to view the board. Just go to the bottom of the page and click on "thread start time" and then "show threads". More clicking to do but it works for me. Just wish it was an option that was remembered.
I have started my next quilt. It will be for my mother's 85th birthday. I chose a print with with birds and trees mostly in reds, greens and purples. I fussy cut the bird print in circles and used a freezer paper technique to sew it as an inset into purple squares. Now I will use red in the corners to make a snowball block. One of her favorite things is sitting in her garden having tea and watching her birds eat their treats.
