This and That Thursday

I spent the morning before work doing a little bit of everything in the sewing room. I found some scrappy hourglass blocks and pieced them together into a small top. 

I loaded this last QOV. And if it looks familiar, I quilted one by the same topper like this in February.

I made one log cabin block. 12 to go! 

 And I cleaned out a cupboard for my long arm thread since this arrived this week. 

  

 The top two shelves hold prewounds bobbins. Previously, I had these in plastic drawers. This is much better. It may require tweaking again soon as I plan to place another thread order in a month or so. It is nice to have what you need on hand. As long armers go, my thread stash is still pretty small.

Linking up with My Quilt a Infatuation for NTT.
