Have you ever had trouble threading your needle.....who hasn't.
Next time try turning the needle around so that you are pushing the thread through the opposite side of the eye. Needles are made by pushing the equipment through the needle to make the eye. Sometimes it is smoother on the side where it starts through the needle rather than the side where it comes out.

It was a reverse applique class. Something I had contemplated but just never had the starting point.
I had a wonderful sandwich from Wheatfields in Lawrence, cranberry and turkey on walnut bread. My mouth waters just remembering it.
Now I just need to finish my zebra with free motion quilting in the negative spaces and a binding.
Thanks for a wonderful day!!!!

I think I only made one major mistake. I didn't trim the shoe above the zipper before I started the satin stitch. So trimmed it afterwards and now it has this fine fringe. I'll just have to live with it. The whole bag was done in the hoop, even making the bag. I only have to blind stitch the lining where it was turned right side out.
I did learn lots, like how to restart when the bobbin runs out, how to go back to a previous color etc. I'd better use it again soon so I don't forget all these lessons.

Go to your discount store and purchase the little girl ponytail scrunchies. Just slip them over your bobbin and you've got it.
Last night was a very stormy night but we just received small hail and hard rain. Fortunate for us but others are without homes and electricity. Hope this isn't a harbinger of the spring to come!

It will make a good throw for the couch when the cold wind blows. And it may be that long before I get around to quilting it.
