Sunday Stash #145 – Sparkle Up Your Life with Aurifil Brillo

When you’re feeling sad and low, we will take you where you gotta go! Smilin’ and dancing’, every thing is free, all you need is positivity! Colours of the world, sparkle up your life, every boy and every girl, sparkle up your life, people of the world, sparkle up your life!
And that pretty much sums up this week’s Sunday Stash #145. So here’s the skinny: For my entire Aurifil-ed quilting life, I’ve been silently wishing and hoping that Aurifil would make a metallic thread. I mean, people, for three years I’ve been having these secret desires. So guess what. Yeah, Aurifil has been making metallic thread since at least 2009.

Why did no one tell me?! I’m just gonna sit over here and pretend like none of you knew either, instead of all of you wanting to like, harbour all the shiny goodness for yourself. Yes, because all you need is positivity, people of the world, sparkle up your life! When I recently discovered this (I can’t remember if Ms. Midge told me, or I told Ms. Midge and she laughed and laughed [at me]) I knew I had to have some immediately. So to make up for my daftness, Ms. Midge sent me a little care package of these Aurifil Brillo Metallic threads. Slurp!
I’ve already decided I’m going to use that green and silver on my Jagged Little Pill quilt to take it where it’s gotta go! I’ll make sure I get appropriate needle-wear and report back on my undoubted success. Until then, people of the world, make sure you go see Ms. Midge to get your own Aurifil thread packs! (And you can stop laughing at me now!) LOL!

    I didn't know Aurifil made metallic threads either. And those wooden spools! Also, amazing 90's song references this week – especially loving the Spice Girls throwback!
