Today... One thread per day / Re: Thursday's TSP birthday wishes

Very many Happy Birthday wishes from me too. Hope you're enjoying your day. :cake: :toast: :flower:

Welcome from me too. :)

Mine never worked well with the threads that Janome supplied with it, so I ditched them and used them for hand tacking. Instead, I use Gutermann Sew All in the needles and either Madeira Aeroflock or Superior Threads Polyarn in the looper. This combination has been the most reliable for me, with no skipped stitches or other problems. :)

2021 BOM Mystery Quiltalongathon / Re: Block 4 - The SAPPHIRE Star

Eventually knuckled down to finishing my Sapphire blocks this afternoon. I'm not particularly happy with them - I don't like the thickness where the FG and SiS join, but they'll look OK once they're all quilted. The centre square IS actually a blue batik but in the photo it looks a murky grey. :\

Onwards and upwards to Block 5 for me. ;)

@Flobear - I'm in the stragglers group too!  :P I'm still struggling with the Sapphire block (I think - at least mine's sapphire) - I'm not keen on the thickness I get when I join the flying geese with the square in a square. I think that's why I rarely make this kind of block. -<

@Iminei - your pieced top is very eye-catching, and I love the little cornerstones.  :loveit:

A Good Yarn / Re: Circular Knitting Needle Question

I have sets of Knitpro metal interchangeable needles - can't remember their proper name, but I never have any problem with the yarn catching at the joins. I think you have to make sure that the cable and needles are screwed together really, really tightly using the little tool that's supplied for the job. :) Hope you have success in your search for the perfect needles!

I haven't been in the Darkside for ages, but I definitely haven't given up! I've just finished my Project Linus animal quilt - hooray!!! :toast: So now I shall go back to the BOM Mystery Quiltalongathonathing. I can't remember how far I got, but I think I've only made the first three (or maybe four) blocks. I don't like working on more than one thing at a time - otherwise the first one is in danger of not getting finished - so I wanted to finish my PL quilt first. Pics will follow on the other thread.

Please don't despair - I'll get there in the end. ;)

This one's really pretty. Thanks @Iminei  :loveit:

The weather is great in Cornwall at the moment so I'm making the most of being able to be outside because I know it won't last. -< Once this spell of sunshine has gone I'll be back to my quilting. I can only work on one project at a time, otherwise nothing gets finished, so I'll be working on my Project Linus animal quilt. It's layered ready for quilting on the embroidery machine so shouldn't take me too long (haha!). Then I'll turn my attention to the Quiltalongathon Blocks. I think I'm still on Block No.4 but I'm really looking forward to doing them. I'll just be that bit behind everyone else! As usual. :)

Hi Liz, and welcome to TSP from me too. :) I'm currently using my embroidery module to do edge-to-edge quilting on my latest quilt.
