I didn't get much sewing done as I'm in Sydney at my daughters, re landscaping the backyard, today we are painting....I worked on my Stonefields quilt using my little string thingy I bought. I pop one of my super bob threads and yay no longer chasing my thread on the floor. I bought it from 'the little quilt store' owned by Lynette Anderson. Love it!
