In a couple of ways! First, with another project using 12 weight egyptian cotton Aurifil. It's a kitchen rug (measuring 33"X45").
Secondly, we are literally moving! In June, L-man and I decided to start looking for a home, thinking that we would probably find something by January or February. We've been piddling around, looking at a few homes here and there and last weekend we found "the one". I'm still in a bit of shock because things are moving faster than I anticipated. We first looked at it 2 weeks ago and have since signed a contract and had the inspection done. What a whirlwind! I can't wait to share more pics with you guys, but for now, here's the kitchen, and where my new rug will eventually live, right there in front of the sink.
Now for the Aurifil giveaway!
Thank you to everyone who commented to enter and told me the type of thread you normally use. There were a few threads I have never heard of that you mentioned! And for those of you who said your machine is picky on thread, so is mine! One thread I know for sure will cause me headaches with my machine is Coats & Clark. I've been super impressed with Aurifil and want to get more of the 12 weight egyptian cotton in more colors for sure. I just love the way it looks for quilting.
The winners are:
#61- Cathi Harry, who said, "I use 100% cotton thread when I can. I would love to try this."
#202- Sharon, who said, "I use cotton or polyester thread for machine quilting
and perle cotton for hand quilting
I have not seen aurifil at my local shops
and I am too impatient to plan
when I start a project, I start it on a spur of the moment and use what I have"
#184- Kira, who said, "I use Coats and Clark. I have a spool of Sulky, but it breaks all over the place."
#197- Jill, who said, "Whatever is on sale!!!"
Go ahead and email me ladies, with your mailing address and I'll get the thread packs out to you this week!
