Keith, I loooove you 'doodle'. If my swimming or flying skills would be better, I'd pop over and you could teach me....... On second thoughts, I better not. You might get so frustrated with me that it would ruin a great friendship. I better leave the 'amazing stuff' Margo, Ritzy, Rita, and others. :)

This is the heavier weight (35) - I just played around - I'm not used to working with thick thread, and working with variegated that goes from so dark to so light, but it worked well. And it's pretty.

I had a 60 weight in the bobbin - I need to play with some other things in the bobbin. And I need to play with the Valdani 50 wt. - maybe this weekend.

You should be able to see it on the mug rug thread of the forum.

Well, as promised, Lorchen sent me some Valdani thread in two different weights and I have only tried the heavier of the two weights. It did my fancy stitches very well. I used it on Pam's mug rug. Will try the lighter weight soon.

Can one walk down one's driveway to the post? If so, that's what I did - and what a nice surprise!!! Two spools of Valdani hand-dyed variegated thread! Yea! Lorchen - you are too generous. I owe you...

What is a mailbox properly called anyway?

And what a wrapper you are, Lorchen!!! I didn't track how many layers I had to open to get to my surprise - I know one was a bright pink box, and there was a batting layer, and a fabric layer, and a cool little hand-made carrying tote, and several more layers...

I've played with the Valdani on some decorative machine stitches - it worked very nicely. Now I'm anxious to play around with it on some machine quilting.

Thank you so much, Lorchen! I'll let you know what I think.

I think I read on one of Marianne Haak's blogs that she loves Valdani thread for quilting. I have never used it myself but now I will have to try it.
