Brown Sugar!

When I first thought about starting a thread club, I really was very unsure how it would be received.  I mean, was everyone as obsessed with threads as I?  Would there really be a market for delicious parcels of thread delivered monthly to your door?  Well – it seems that yes, the obsession is real.  And yes, the market for thread deliveries is real!  I’ve been thrilled with the reception, and have enjoyed working with some of my favourite bloggers to bring you … Continue Reading »

Sunday Stash- Threadology

The #aussieaurifilclub has just shipped its fifth month!  Which means my thread stash has slightly self-combusted!  This is not a bad thing.  I repeat – NOT a bad thing!  What IS a bad thing, is my running out of room….. I bought this fabulous thread rack a couple of months ago, and as you can see, it’s full! So, I got myself another!  I just need to get out and spray paint it white, then hang it directly above the other.  Perfect!  If … Continue Reading »

Sunday Stash & Dash

I know you have been missing my somewhat whitty and delightful blog posts, but I’m here to assure you – I’m still alive!  I mentioned to my gorgeous charm swap group the other day, that I’ve been struggling a bit lately, in terms of finding the time required to get projects off the ground and works in progress actually finished.  I’m obviously also not finding as much time to write blog posts! So today’s Sunday Stash & Dash is kind of a check … Continue Reading »

Aurifil – More Bang For Your Buck!

I may have mentioned previously that my darling husband has been home for the past seven weeks?  In that time, he’s accompanied me on various trips, one of them recently being to Spotlight.  Whilst I searched around for the fabric I was after, I found him standing in the thread aisle.  Concentrating.  Taking it all in.  I disrupted his concentration asking him what on earth he was so engrossed in?  Thread he says.  Be still my beating heart….. “How much do you sell your … Continue Reading »

Back to the Sewing Machine!

It seems I’ve had some sort of sewing hiatus.  There are a multitude of reasons why, however, I shall not bore you all, except to say – I returned to my sewing machine this week!  Which is a very good thing, because I have a to-do list the length of a limb! I started off with this fabulous bee block for Kim!  I joined my Melbourne MQG’s “Artistic Licence” bee this year, and this month is Kim’s turn to give the orders.  She … Continue Reading »
