My WIP list is getting shorter.  Even though this has been a busy week with lots of holiday shopping and all the usual to-dos around the house, I’ve dedicated a few hours a day to sewing. And it’s been very therapeutic. Tonight I’m catching up on Glee and doing some free motion quilting.

This is my Plume Charms quilt. I started it in May but put it aside because of thread issues (blogged about here). This weekend I went to my LQS and bought a soft pink spool of Aurifil for my Pfaff and she has forgiven me. The quilting is going well this time around. Thread is one of those things that I used to take for granted. For home decor or garment sewing you pretty much only use polyester so using cotton was a foreign concept for me when I first started to quilt. Then it took me a long time to find a thread that I really liked. Looking back, I think many of my early quilting woes can be blamed on inexperience and bad thread equally. What’s your favorite brand?
