Just call exec() in your run() method. And it will start event loop that 
will work untill you call exit() or quit() in you thread. And don't 
forget to start() your thread.

If you will do it so then this methods will called on that thread from 
which they are called. I.e. from GUI thread, for example. You should 
create some object that will live in your thread and, for example, will 
be connected to some signals where that object will do specific work 
and, for example, emit some signal with result.
