Moving Right Along...

And then I ran out of thread. Murphy's Law?
In my thread drawer, the closest matching green was a Coats and Clark, cheapo thread. Since it looked more than half full, I thought this would be a good time to use it up. But the joke was on me, it ran out. So I had to buy another cheapo to finish this quilt. Which means I'll probably put another half spool away when I'm done.
"What are you looking at? I don't see anything exciting"
Before all that I did finish 3 stars and about half of the stitching in the ditch.
During my down time, I pulled out my applique and started working on my first egg. Still a wait and see.
This morning during the dogs walk, I noticed that all the trees had ice on them. Cold but beautiful!
Some how my pictures swapped, hhmm.
Anyway, I also grabbed some scraps and lace and ... well, I don't know yet.
So that's it for this week. I'm hoping to get a bit more quilting done on the green quilt this weekend. And who knows what else my unorganized mind will come up with.

Have a Wonderful creative weekend!
Take care, Brandie

The quilting looks great but what I am really looking forward to seeing more of is that egg. Those curlicues looks so fun!

What a cool egg!! Loving that heart project so far, too. And don't you just know that would happen with the thread. lol
