The little girl whose mother was shot and killed a few days ago will be getting this quilt soon. Turns out her mother was the friend of my childhood friend. I had no idea my childhood friend lives so close to me. She posted on Facebook that they were looking for the killer of her friend and I happened to read the story since it is in a neighboring town. I offered to make a quilt and asked for her favorite colors. Pink and purple. I love the star blocks in scrappy colors. I think I have found a new favorite pattern. I worked on this yesterday and today while my quilt quilted away.
Oh, and I ordered some bobbin thread to keep me from changing the bobbin so often. I think I grabbed a spool of quilting thread and that's why the bobbin was running out so often. The top thread and bobbin thread are both 40 wt. Yeah, not much thread fits when it is 40 wt. Bobbin thread is either 60 wt or 70 wt depending on the brand. Can't wait until that gets here now. I got white and black. I think I have some 70 wt bobbin thread around here somewhere. Just have to find it. Tomorrow I'm off to the LBC to ship the boxes to the Philippines, off to Nurse Family partnership to deliver quilts and then hopefully making some more shelves for the garage so I can organize some more. Included in the day will be quilting the pink and purple quilt and getting the binding on it.
And crossing my fingers my migraine is gone. I've had the same one for three weeks now. I've asked the doctor if I can get acupuncture. Maybe that will help? I've thought about sticking a knitting needle in my eye. What could be worse?
