I made this. ‘-)

To understand the following, you would have to know that Tucker stole my Gutermann quilting thread and I couldn’t find it.  I eventually found it and posted this:

The Managing Director sent me a message on Facebook that I didn’t see until months later wherein he had offered to replace the thread.  I explained that the thread color in question was not a usual color for my work and thanked him anyway.  He then said to name my thread and I told him I could use some polyester sewing thread in color 102 (gray) which I use a lot of in my machine piecing.  I received the thread shortly thereafter.  ;)

I feel it was a very generous, and much appreciated gift!

The following is my response to him.

Letter to Managing Director at Gutermann Thread

February 5, 2013

Dear Mr. *******,

I would like to properly thank you for sending me the two spools of gray sewing thread to replace the quilter’s thread my dog Tucker chewed up.   To show my thanks I have made you a little gift.  It is a bit primitive, as I am still learning,

[EDIT]

Sincerely,

Lynda Swink & Tucker too

Oh yes, and Tucker wanted you to know that he has promised to never chew up such fine thread again!

One six and one half-inch Mini Quilt depicting a spool of chewed thread.   ;)    The work is machine pieced, needle turned applique, with hand quilting.  I almost sent this without taking a picture of it!  (That would have made me sad.)

I had fun!

PS:  I still owe you a post, but I am trying to figure out how best to write it and if it even wants writing.  :P

Finished!
