What's Up Thursday

I finished the red pouch for the winner of the Grow Your Blog, Val @ Val's Quilting Studio. I hope she likes it! She has a great blog and could use some new visitors! Maybe some of you could drop by and take a look. It was the Grow Your Blog Giveaway.

As I have done before, I used Aurifil 12 wt. thread in my sewing machine to accent!

Now I have this pink pouch I finished and have to find a use for it! Do you use pouches to keep your things in around the house or a ziplock bag? I have been going around looking for the ziplocks and replacing them with my pouches! Looks so much neater.

Speaking of Aurifil threads I moved all mine into this great Nuts and Bolts holder from the hardware store to have it all together right by my sewing machine. Looking at the hardware store for storage options can be very rewarding. The craft stores have similar products at twice the cost. You would be amazed at what you can find.

Finished my block for the Aurifil Designer of the Month This months designer is Amy Gibson of Stitchery Dickory Dock! Hurry up and get it done and in the Aurifil Thread Flickr Group

Each month they giveaway free thread to one winner! Isn't that worth making the block! I think so! So join me and the others!

Thank you for stopping by!

  1. Yeah. I should probably make myself a few cute ways to carry around my goods. I usually just toss them in plastic bags and totes to carry around. Not cute, not cute for sure. :)

  2. Its as if you read my mind! You seem to know a great deal about this, just like you wrote the novel in it or something.
