W.I.P Wednesday

Where has the week gone??? This week I am making some progress...
From my original list; I have the Tree/House quilt top in the frames and hand
quilting it.  I have pieced a new top; I mentioned the cross stitch blocks that a
lady had for me to put together and quilt for her...well, that is I did make those little extra jobbies on my blog that weren't planned...I just couldn't get something together for the block party. I was disappointed, but, oh   Maybe next time,eh....good luck to all of you with your blocks..they look great.....have a good week.

Fresh Poppy DesignHave fun with the block party; all of you..I found out a bit too late for me
to get anything together. So; the best of luck, and can't wait to see all of the nice blocks......

I have a question for those who do free motion sewing....I don't do it much; but like to play around a little
Sometimes I have no problem; sometimes I do. The problem always seems to be with the threading; somehow. Is there a problem using monafilament thread in the needle and cotton/polyester in the bobbin?
I am asking this now because I spent most of my morning trying to get my stitches on top of fabric to work right....they were skipping; so I am assuming it is the bobbin. Or is it the combination of the two different threads?  Help!!!!!..LOL...It seems I can do a sample; it works...I get my good work out and it messes up.

Don't want to ruin things....any ideas????

Thank you
