PS: My #60 machine applique needles won't thread with the threader on my Janome.........but I guess you were talking about HAND applique needles, and yes, that needle threader is a GODsend!

Hi Lynn, I noticed you use a Janome, so do I . I have 3. The 8000, Jem Gold and I just bought the 6600P. Every time I use it I find something more to love about it.
You are right, some threads will not thread with the needle threader that is attached. I have trouble with the silk threads too.

I've printed out, but not begun, the April block. It is really pretty. Margo, you are a whiz...I hope hubby is getting better. BTW, I found the Bic pencils that Sharon S. uses with the glue, but they came in packs of 24...and since I really don't need 23 leftover pencils, I didn't buy them. I guess I will still keep using the washable school glue stick and wash the block like crazy afterwards. I did soak my stiff ones in Synthropol and they are much better. I guess it was un-washed out glue.

I think I'm going to make all of the circles first and get them out of the way before I start the rest.

Lynn, I noticed a few mistakes, but then, it was uploaded on April Fool's Day, so I just thought, don't be so serious! Lighten up! :lol:

Did you all notice the omission on the pattern? Easy to fix, but the left portion of a couple of leaves was omittied ..... just a fine point, as I traced them without problem.

Too Funny! Seriously though, I bought one of those Clover Desk Top needle threaders. I have to say that it is a miracle worker. I can't believe how easy it makes the job of threading needles.

That needle threader is easily one of my most useful notions!!! I use mine all the time!

I came in today thinking that some energetic soul would show us their April block. I guess I'll have to wait a bit more.

Rather than having to remove the basting thread when making the bias - what about using the water soluable thread - then nothing to remove - just soak away. I'm off to pick out my fabrics - and gasp - I may need to go shopping for more fabric.

Love the blocks Susan.
