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 someone had of told me a few years ago that I would require this much thread storage, I quite possibly would have laughed myself silly. But I’m finding having all of these colour options on hand is incredibly satisfying. And I’m very glad that with each month’s thread bundle, I am getting myself a batch too!
Remember – subscriptions are ALWAYS open for the club! And if you sign up before the end of the month, you receive your first shipment around the middle of the following month. Easy. You can sign up HERE. It’s not just open to Australians, but New Zealand and some Asian countries too 🙂
In other thread news, these pretties came home with me last week…..
And were then shipped off to a new home! Aurifil’s Brillo metallic threads come in 32 different colours, all of which I can happily order in for you! They have traditionally been wound on the cutesy wooden spools, however, are now transitioning to plastic. Same, same – but different! You can use them in a variety of ways – including knitting?!?! Who knew?
If you can guess who I have shipped these pretties off to, you will go in the running to receive a bundle for yourself! Just comment on this post with your guess and I will draw a winner Tuesday!
My lovely friend Alyce is hosting Sunday Stash today, so head over and see her!
