Some days are just more 
productive than others,
but no matter what happens or
doesn't happen

we're continually moving forward.
That is, of course, if you're not 
literally moving backwards.

Yesterday my quilting progress
consisted of this:

threading 30 needles and 
winding them onto my needle dome.

I guess I could feel some what defeated.
It's a pretty small "forward" activity.

 the next time I do have an opportunity
to sit down and quilt
I'll be ready!

It's all about your perspective.

Until Next Time-


  1. I don't thread needles ahead of time but I can see it would be a time saver. My threads would probably tangle with each other and I would spend time untangling or throwing the thread away.

  2. You are nevertheless making progress, Kyle.

  3. Wow, 30 needles threaded! I'm not even sure I own that many needles. You are prepared to stitch! : )

  4. I don't believe I've ever seen one of these needle organizers that you've mentioned. I'll have to start paying attention next time I'm at the LQS.

  5. That is definitely will be whizzing through those needles non-stop! That's always my downfall when hand quilting.....I just start to get a good rhythm going, and I have to stop to thread needles. I've never put that many up at once, but I just might do that next time! Awesome!

  6. 30 needles? Mine only hold 10
    I feel the same way now that I'm hand quilting - it is SLOW
    then there is all the housework I'm doing and cleaning out -

    1. I know there are only 10 slots, but I put 3 needles in each spot. It's winds up fine with quilting thread. But even doing 10 needles, it's a great time saver.
