Here is the latest block for the Stonefields quilt by Susan Smith. This is the last block needed to complete Month 2. But I'm sure many of you are already wondering why I used two different pinks to applique the blocks. And this is where the crime drama begins.
For applique, I use the Superior Masterpiece cotton thread provided in bobbins stored in "donuts." Adorable. And that's the reason for my thread choice...adorable! However, the arrow on the left is pointing to a missing bobbin. And yes, next to the empty spot is a bobbin that is more chewed than adorable. Because yes, thieves also love these bobbins.
Last night, I very carefully hid the pink bobbin I was using because Criminal Suspect #1 (AKA Buddy) had already run off with a larger spool of thread. He had also chewed the bobbin displayed above in Exhibit I. This morning, the hidden pink bobbin remained hidden. I looked all over...both in places that I might have hidden the bobbin and in places that Buddy might hide the bobbin.
I also had to consider Criminal Suspect #2 although Molly prefers to be caught in the act. But she is also a notorious accomplice. So my search expanded.
By the end of the day, Molly was getting a bit impatient with my searching. She suggested that I check the pockets of the shirt I was wearing yesterday. And yes, that's where I found the pink bobbin. Unchewed. And now I am left wondering how long Molly knew and how she knew.
