I am (still) working on that super secret present quilt. I'm in the quilting stage of things, but unfortunately had a bit of a threading mishap today that I didn't catch until I'd sewn for miles. So I had to rip out all that bunchy, loopy, terrible stitching, and ended up with a pile of thread. There's my ergonomic thread ripper for size comparison. What a waste of time (and thread). Lesson learned: check the back of a quilt frequently while quilting!
