Wigglin'

I mentioned earlier this week about doing some wiggling in and out of the zig-zaggy sashes on this little quilt with red thread. I love the effect, this one is turning out just like I had hoped. I plan to do a similar, but larger scale, "wiggle" with glow-in-the-dark thread in the outer border. I had asked my husband a while back if he could make a horizontal spool holder for Sundance, I showed him what I had in mind and he whipped one up for me in short order. It's perfect for smaller, stacked threads such as the clear Mono Poly that I'm using here. I placed the spool onto the holder and we knew right away that we were going to have to find a way to stabilize it on the post. A recycled wine cork did the trick, perfectly; the spool sits nice and still now. Sometimes a little wigglin' is a good thing and sometimes (if you're a spool of thread) it's not!
Cheers!
Life is Good!

What I want to know is this: Is Shelton Vinyards really worthy of Sundance. That's all. You would recall, no?

The quilt looks great! Don't you love having a husband that can make just what you need. The wine cork looks like recycling at its best! Have a great day!

Love the quilt and the *wigglin*! Don't we appreciate how hubbies are able to create JUST THE RIGHT thing when we explain what it is that would help? My guy is right on the project, especially when it can involve being creative! Gotta love our hubbies!!

Nothing beats a resourceful quilter! Looks like I may have to open a bottle to get at the new tool. HA! Cheers to you.

Looks great! I love that you used glow in the dark thread in the border, how neat!!! I will have to borrow your wine cork idea! I never would have thought of that!!!!

Two heads are better than one. You two are so smart. That will be interesting with that glow in the dark thread.

You are having such a wonderful time! I have so enjoyed taking this quilting journey with you - the joy in your words just leaps off the page! Mr. G is a good man to have around, isn't he? Him, and a wine cork!!
