A personal blog about quilting, sewing and life as a mother. Lots of free tutorials including beginning quilting tutorials, binding tutorials, and other sewing projects like bags, quilt blocks and nursing covers.
I’m a cone thread user. I love knowing I’m not going to run out of thread for a LONG time. I’ve been using Aurifil’s 50 Weight thread for a while now. There’s almost 6500 yards of thread on these suckers! I have a thread stand like this one so that I can use them with my regular sewing machine. I just buy one neutral color of thread and use it on everything.
This weekend was the first time in months that I had to get out a new cone. Someone (I forget who) suggested writing the date on the inside of the new cone, just so I could see how long it would last. I’m excited to see how long I go. I guess a more accurate measure would be to know how many projects I sew with one cone of thread. But there’s not enough room to write all that inside my cone.
In other exciting news, we have a Giveaway winner! It’s: Jenny said… great pattern, great fabric! thanks for a chance.
For those of you who didn’t win, but still want the Chain Linked pattern, for the rest of the week I’ve marked it down to only $6 if you use the BUY NOW button right here. Your pattern will be emailed to you instantly for down load.
