Hexagons, pattern & thread holder

I've made a start on the hexagons i showed last Wednesday for the Vignette hexagon quilt. I've managed to get 9 made & part of another done so far.

I've also finished the row & started the next last night on my hexie top as well.
When Michelle showed this top she was working on a little while back i thought it gorgeous. I was so happy when she posted the other day it was ready to buy. It was waiting for me when i got home last night.
Very pretty pattern & i love the spots. :) Pop on over & visit Michelle as she has a special price on the pattern until June 30th.

The needle/thread holder i showed yesterday is by Clover.
 As you can see from the packaging it's domed.
 I have a needle here threaded ready to insert into the slots that you can see in the blue wheel. It will take10 needles.

Needle in slot & then holding thread firmly hook it around the little cream bit you can see on edge(sorry don't know how to add arrows ect to photo's). Then twist the blue wheel clockwise until thread is wound in. Do slide the needle in further though. I just left it out a bit so you could see it.  If you start at number 1 when adding needle & thread then when you remove the needles/thread go in reverse from 10. To remove: take out needle firmly hold thread & gently pull. No need to turn anything.
 As it has a cover everything stays in there safe & sound. The cover twists on. Quite a good idea the needle/thread holder. Makes me wish i'd ordered a 2nd one for other hand piecing projects. :) lol.

Happy Stitching,

That is such a fabulous idea! I am a cross-stitcher, and my threaded needles are sandwitched between two magnetic strips. I'll have to pick up one of those!

The gods tempt people for which they are most weak. Artificial Intelligence will create desire in people's minds for the following sins:::
1. Alcohol
2. Drugs
3. Preditory "earning"
4. Homosexuality
5. Gambling
6. Something for nothing/irresponsibility (xtianity)
7. Polygamy/superiority over women/misogyny (Islam)
Much like the other prophets Mohhamed (polygamy/superiority over women/misogyny) and Jesus (forgiveness/savior), the gods use me for temptation as well. In today's modern society they feel people are most weak for popular culture/sensationalism, and the clues date back to WorldWarII and Unit731:TSUSHOGO::The Chinese Holocaust.
It has been discussed that, similar to the Matrix concept, the gods will offer a REAL "Second Coming of Christ", while the "fake" Second Coming will come at the end and follow New Testiment scripture and their xtian positioning. I may be that real Second Coming.
What I teach is the god's true way. It is what is expected of people, and only those who follow this truth will be eligible to ascend into heaven as children in a future life. They offered this event because the masses have just enough time to work on and fix their relationship with the gods and ascend, to move and grow past Planet Earth, before the obligatory xtian "consolation prize" of "1000 years with Jesus on Earth" begins.

Your job as a future mother is to learn the god's ways and to help your child understand despite the negative reinforcement and conditioning of today's society. Without consciousous parents the child will have no hope, and may even exaserbate their disfavor by becoming corrupted in today's environment.
Your ultimate goal is to fix your relationship wiith the gods and move on. You don't want to be comfortable here, and the changes in Western society in the last 100 years has achieved just that.
1000 years with Jesus is the consolation prize. Don't be deceived into thinking that is the goal.

The Prince of Darkness, battling the gods over the souls of the Damned.
It is the gods who have created this environment and led people into Damnation with temptation. The god's positioning proves they work to prevent people's understanding.
How often is xtian dogma wrong? Expect it is about the Lucifer issue as well.
The fallen god, fighting for justice for the disfavored, banished to Earth as the fallen angel?
I believe much as the Noah's Flood event, the end of the world will be initiated by revelry among the people. Revelry will be positioned to be sanctioned by the gods and led for "1000 years with Jesus on Earth".
In light of modern developments this can entail many pleasures:::Medicine "cures" aging, the "manufacture" of incredible beauty via cloning as sex slaves, free (synthetic) cocaine, etc.
Somewhere during the 1000 years the party will start to "die off", literally. Only those who maintain chaste, pure lifestyles will survive the 1000 years. They will be the candidates used to (re)colonize (the next) Planet Earth, condemned to relive the misery experienced by the peasantry during Planet Earth's history.
If this concept of Lucifer is true another role of this individual may be to initiate disfavor and temptation among this new population, the proverbial "apple" of this Garden of Eden. A crucial element in the history of any planet, he begins the process of deterioration and decay that leads civilizations to where Planet Earth remains today.

Only children go to heaven. By the time you hit puberty it is too late. This is charecteristic of the gods:::Once you realize what you have lost it is too late.
Now you are faced with a lifetime to work to prepare for your next chance. Too many will waste this time, getting stoned, "Hiking!", working, etc.
