I recently had a birthday gift of a little gift card and was given specific instructions to spend it on something FUN for myself. No groceries, no gas, nothing of that sort.
I knew right away it would be something for my sewing area. I needed new blades, but that isn't too fun. Just like it was fate, I received my deals email from Connecting Threads (not a sponsor or anything, just sharing my purchase and my opinions). I haven't done a whole lot of ordering online for my quilting goods. I once borrowed some pretty light green thread from a friend at a retreat and I felt that it worked really nice for that project. When I saw the great sale that they had, I knew it was meant to be.
Oh the rainbow to choose from...
I had a hard time deciding which colors I was most likely to use. One little spool of tea dyed thread got in there, but I think I did a pretty good job of stepping outside my box.
I had them all laid out on top of my butterfly that is waiting for its quilting and I noticed this:
I was thinking I was going to do a real dense meander (or maybe learn how to do feathers) in grey on just the background and maybe something on the body in black, but now I am reconsidering.
What are your thoughts?
Here is the butterfly:
My son had a good laugh pointing out the names of the colors I chose. Sangria, Merlot, Wine... Do you see a theme here? :)
