A done deal.....!

I like to think of myself as proactive!

What a fancy word for what used to known as "planning ahead". When I worked for a corporation, our vocabulary was full of buzz words! I've forgotten many of them. I just don't get to use them in a quilt Shoppe! ;o)

Knowing that I had hocuspocusville to machine quilt, I went ahead and ordered a larger spool of YLI monofilament thread. I figured that normal little tiny spool just wasn't going to get the job done.

Imagine my surprise when I received this in the mail!

Yea! Okay, what the heck is this?

That ... is what they call a pound of monofilament thread!

It does not look at all like the picture on the website! As a matter of fact, far from it!

Does this actually fit on Penelope?

Surprise, surprise it does!

Needless to say, I have monofilament thread to last me a couple of life times! I just hope I not only remember where I placed it, but that it's actually still a good thing to use when I come back for another round! lol

After finally finishing to croak Hocuspocusville, I went to work with Penelope and now have a finish!

Tah dah!

Use lots of monofilament thread on the houses. ;o)

No.... I did not put a dent on that huge spool, if you want to call it that. lol

I do like the way it turned out!

I chose not to hand embroider between the blocks. I wanted the quilt to look like a neighbourhood!

Of course you all know what is on the back! The Ghaslies!

You know, it's a great feeling to be able to cross out a project from my 2009 UFO list! Hurray for me!

Thanks for stopping by! Cheers!

I love how it came out. I am still working on my table topper, think it has been 4 days, lol. I knew I should have machine quilted it;)

Congratulations -- it's just adorable! And that spool is too funny. Maybe you should use it to tie people up or something LOL!
