Playing with Thread

I got to play with thread this weekend. A couple of weeks ago Lynne posted on her blog about an Aurifil Thread Challenge that she was organizing for Fat Quarterly. I clicked on over to the challenge putting my name in the hat but not fully expecting to be able to participate because there was only room for 10 people and there were already many more comments than that when I commented. But I was one of the 10 selected! I was so excited I couldn't wait to get started. My brain started working overtime thinking about what I wanted to do. My thread arrived Saturday and I was able to complete what I made this weekend. I was a mad woman sewing like crazy and tossing scraps behind my back like Eleanor Burns. I felt like electric was pulsating through my body (probably just the 3 cups of coffee I drank). I was afraid to lose even a second of creative energy. I think I channeled that energy well. I will share what I made soon :)

Did you sew this weekend? What did you work on?

This weekend I've been multi-tasking on my friend's 40th birthday pressie bag and purse (the bag's an Amy Butler challenge, enough said on the amount of time around pattern cutting alone!) and also on my dad's Christmas pressie redwork embroidery wall hanging.

Good luck in the challenge :o)

That looks like a fun pack of thread! Can't wait to see what had you sewing like a madwoman! I worked on a couple Christmas pillow covers. Got one finished but haven't gotten the chance to take pictures. Have a good night!
