Choosing Threads

I have had a quilt design drawn up for a very long time.  It's a 9 block quilt and is stitchery and applique.  The printed drawings have been sitting on my desk for some time.  I lost my design mojo for quite a long while.  I let LIFE get the better of me and lost the passion.  

When I had a big destash recently I came across the fabrics I had put aside for this project and decided it was time to stitch it.  

I spent quite some time choosing threads from my collection to go with the fabrics.

Then I placed them all on my little thread holder ruler ready to use.  Aren't they pretty ?

Then I began stitching.  I am so glad I did.  It is bringing me a lot of joy making my drawings come to life.

I'm not sure what I will do with the design yet - I will have to have a think about that.  I have my 3rd block traced up and ready to stitch.

Have a great weekend.
