{to do} - meh


Last week I linked up with Kelsey of Kelsey Sews for her 100 Day Hustle. I'm looking forward to the challenge. I'm still in a bit of a creating funk, but did get a few things done this weekend. I planned to get more done, but late afternoon I was taking a nap and woke up to plaster falling in my living room. There's a nice big hole in my ceiling. Nothing major, but still weird and it screwed up my momentum because I ended up having to clean up the mess and got distracted. Hopefully it's a quick and easy fix. I don't particularly care to have people in my apartment when I'm not here.
  • piece together Simpatico top
  • finish greeting card order for aunt
  • work on blog design for new blog
  • start purging craft area
  • crochet a few hats
Question, when you're piecing together blocks and things, what color thread do you use? Does it coordinate  with the fabric or is it a neutral color? I've been using grey lately or sometimes I use whatever is in my machine because I'm too lazy to change it. I figured no one would see it, so it doesn't really matter.

I don't really have anything to show for Fresh Sewing Day. I'm sure I've completed some projects, but it's late and they're eluding me. I do know I did a lot of fabric cutting though. Does that count?

Linking up with Lily's Quilts for Small Blog Meet

I use medium grey for piecing a lot. Goes with everything.

I tend to use white or off white thread for my piecing, unless I'm working on a dark background, of course. I'm definitely not one to match the thread to the fabric though!

I've enjoyed your blog. Coming in through Lily's Quilts to visit for the first time.

I almost always use off-white or gray for my sewing. Hope that pesky hole doesn't cause any more trouble!

I usually use white or off-white thread when piecing light things and gray when piecing dark things...but there have been times when I just use whatever is in the machine though. Threading that needle and filling a bobbin is a lot of work LOL!

I use a neutral thread. Sometimes, I'll just use whatever I have in my machine but then if I press my seams open, you can see it and especially, if the thread is dark, it is very noticeable!

I usually use white or off white to piece unless I'm using only dark fabrics, then I go dark grey or black.
