Sew Mama Sew Giveaway!

Today is a fun day in the crafty blogland – dozens of blogs are having fun giveaways today with Sew Mama Sew! I’m happy to have two samplers of my favorite brand of thread Auriful – I use the 50 wt of this for almost all my piecing (I use a beige which blends nicely). It has very little lint and gives me very few skipped stitches, etc. no matter what crazy things I am trying to sew with it.

They also have fantastic decorative weight threads – the massive 12 wt wool and cotton add a really neat touch and can be used in the sewing machine, albeit slowly and I recommend a 100/16 topstitch or a 90 metallic needle.

Lastly, it may seem like this thread is pricier, but since you get soo much of it on a spool, and you have fewer tangles that leave you pulling out and throwing away thread, it’s actually very economical.

To win (there will be two winners), just leave a comment by December 7th! You can tell a joke or a funny story if you like.

Though I haven’t blogged in a while, I’ve been sewing away on several custom orders. Here is something I made for myself. Do you ever finish a project with a long list of all the things you would change about it to make it better? I can’t look at this yet without thinking of all the ways I would improve it. As I have no intention of making another version of this one any time too soon, I think I’ll just tuck it away for a bit.

Lamps Quilt

I’m sharing it here because it is chock full of some Aurifil thread! I used the white 12wt on the lamps – it was a bit fussy like I said – it’s a huuuge thread, and I need to fix a few areas, but I do love the effect.
