Stupid is as stupid does...

El fin de semana pasado comencé a hacer el quilting de esta colcha. Lo primero fue decidir el color del hilo y aunque al principio pensé en usar blanco, finalmente me decidí por uno con una  mezcla de diferentes azules.... todo iba bien, hasta que me terminé los dos carretes que tenía... y aunque no suena a un problema mayor, bueno, pues ese tipo de hilo no lo venden donde vivo... por qué no  pensé en eso antes de comenzar? (sí, ya se que la respuesta a esa pregunta está en el título de este post...)
Esos hilos mi mamá me los trajo de Joann la última vez que fue a Arizona... ...ahora tengo el 80% del trabajo hecho, pero me quedé sin hilo... cambiaré de color? no me gusta la idea... alguien sabe si puedo conseguir esos hilos en México (preferentemente en Guadalajara) ?

Last weekend I started doing the quilting on this quilt. The first thing was to decide the color of thread and although at first I was thinking in white, I finally decided on one with a blended of blues.... everything was great until I finished the two spools that I had ... and although it do not sounds like a big problem, well, the thing is that kind of thread I cant' find them where I live... why I didn't think about it before start? (ok, I get it, that answer is in the title of this post...)
 These threads brought my mother from Joann last time she visited Arizona ... ... now I have 80% of the quilting done, but I ran out of thread ... change the color? I do not like the idea ... anyone knows a place where I can find those threads in Mexico (preferably in Guadalajara)? 




feliz semana a todos!
happy week to all!
