Hello my blog friends. I am cut off from getting to my craft room/studio/office. I am having a new kitchen floor put in. We had a water leak shortly after we moved in, ruining the wood floor in the kitchen. The people we bought the house from wedged the fridge under a cabinet, causing a water leak under the fridge..we think it was the water line to the icemaker. Anyway we noticed we had water and a spongy floor...yikes. So anyway today the contractor is tearing all the wood out and the carpet in the dining room out. With having a dog..Buddy..my 120 pound German Shephard, we needed something a little more durable than wood..so we are going with ceramic tile. Now my office is off of the dining room..I had the foresight to grab the laptop, but forgot to grab the cable in order to download any pics..silly me. I will grab it when the guys go on lunch or something..surely they will take a break. I am hoping I will be able to get in there today but they said once the tile was down I couldn't walk on it for a couple of days..Guess who isn't cooking?!!!OH my..I better make sure to grab some thread too...better make a list..
Ok I have a question for my fellow threadies..I bought some thread online..never used this thread before, but loved all the variety of colors offered. I know..I sell Cebelia at my Etsy shop..but there is only 25 colors and I needed a burgundy..not the deep red. So I bought Elizbeth thread size 10. Now that is some expensive thread..only 122 yards on a ball...I digress. I am not liking working with this thread at all..it seems to tangle up as it comes off the ball..my question is this..does this happen with every ball or did I get a messed up ball? I have only used one ball and about to go into a second, if it tangles like the first I am going to be an unhappy camper. This thread is stiff kind of reminds me of Southmaid in how it works up. I am so not liking it. Which leads me to a second question..how will it wash up? Will it fade onto white or is it as colorfast as Cebelia? I don't want to offend anyone out there..but I don't think I will use this thread again unless I absolutely have to...for a number of reasons..first it is more expensive than the Cebelia..yes, the ball is cheaper, but there is less than half the thread..second I don't like the tangles, third I am not liking the results..and fourth..it is made in China. I should have done more research, but I was sucked in by the variety of colors..I avoid buying things made in China strictly on principle. So my fellow threadies....I am sorry if I offended anyone, I didn't mean to. Just my opinion..I would love to hear your thoughts and experience with this thread. Maybe I got a bad ball..Blessings to you all and may you all have enough..
