LOL

I have not stopped laughing since my another use for Aurifil post yesterday. Thanks for all the great giggles and comments you left. Thanks as well to Annabella, Lynne and particularly Alex Veronelli for spreading the word about threading as well as putting my ugly mug on the Aurifil facebook page!! Hilarious!

Fits of laughter have prevented me from having any proper finishes this week, although I did manage to complete block 17 of my Rose Star quilt:


If you want to make these gorgeous blocks please visit the fabulous selfsewn for the tutorial as well as great info on English Paper Piecing.

My wonderful friend has given birth to a beautiful baby boy so I'm desperate to get her quilt finished up and sent. I'll be hand quilting some though so I'm not rushing too much. I really want her and her amazing husband to love it! So far, so good... check out how nicely these points match up!! I've been using Lynne's great technique :)




*** Don't forget to enter my wonderful giveaway, you have until Monday! ***




Linking up:

There and Back



Hope you all have a weekend full of laughter :)

  6. If all else fails, you can set up a stand in Superdrug or something, offering threading there ;o)
