A few days ago, I came upon something that I thought was a very appealing idea. I was browsing away on the Fatquartershop.com and was intrigued by this Floral Gatherings collection. It is a little box of Auriful thread that coordinates perfectly with the latest fabric collection by Primitive Gatherings.
How pretty is that? I certainly couldn't resist it! It will be fun to see if other designers will come out with these little boxes of threads that match their fabrics. When I sew on my machine, I typically use a big spool of a neutral shade of Aurifil that disappears into the fabric. However when I do machine applique or sew on my binding I like to have something that matches the fabric closely. These shades of thread are such a nice addition to anyone's thread collection, and if nothing else they are like pretty little jewels nesting in the box we can just enjoy looking at!
I've been a bad blogger this week. So much is going on around the house and at work, I have barely had a minute to myself. It feels so good to just sit in the living room and stare at the Christmas tree when I have a second, so that is how I have been spending my leisure time, little of it that there has been! Hope you are all enjoying this marvelous time of year.
