Decisions, Decisions, Decisions

Stepping-Stones has been a quilt top for a week. I waited for an outside picture this weekend. Still do not have one. Yesterday was bright and lovely. I ran errands. Today is gray and dull. Oh, well!

Learning applique is my goal for 2012. My Hobbico Sealing Iron, C. Jenkins Freezer Paper, etc. etc. are ready. These goodies came from Jennifer Bosworth, Shabby Fabrics. Check out her website! - reasonable prices, great shipping, lots of fabrics/notion selections and Jennifer is offering a free Mystery Quilt BOM - Country Cottages. My fabric patiently awaits - Santa was Good! My John James straw needles snuggle in an adorable feed sack needle case I won from Susan Entwistle, Quixotic Crafter a while back.

I have debated thread. Jennifer uses Kimono #100 Silk Thread by Superior Threads. Susan, suggested the same.  I thought less expensive for starters ...... but why question the experts? All morning I browsed the 80 luscious colors of Kimono. My rule - 4 spools ONLY! Hard decision!

Decisions, Decisions, Decisions - presenting the 4 I ordered .........................
