I wish all Mondays were like this one


because look what arrived first thing this morning!!

even the baby couldn't keep her hands off them

I adore this mix of gorgeous colours, they are beautiful. This is my incredible prize from the Blogger's Quilt Festival at Amy's Creative Side. Huge thanks to Amy and the amazing Aurifil for this wonderful prize! Thank you!



Again I would like to say thank you to all my wonderful Bee mates who helped me win by making such beautiful feather blocks for the quilt! I should really send you all some of this thread but... urm... I'm not going to. I'm going to be selfish. I don't do that often so forgive me. Also two Bees were involved and that would mean cutting the spools in half and I'm just not willing to do that ;)

Isn't it funny that I bound the Bees of a Feather quilt using an Alison Glass Feathers print? Serendipity.

  10. Yippee, it's here! I was lucky enough to win a thread collection and the best thing I did was to take all the spools out of the box and put them in with the rest of my threads: I knew I wouldn't use them for ages if they were all together and looking pretty!

  21. As I was in both bees does that mean I should get a whole one!? Glad you are keeping them - I will just assume moral ownership of anything you stitch with them! Enjoy!
