It's a Sew Down ~ Aurifil 2020Challenge

My new cone of Aurifil has arrived !

I am getting ready for the big Sew Down!

To help supply the thread you may need

It is good on all colors and all sizes for one week.

I am a blogger affiliate of Fat Quarter Shop
and if you shop in the product links on my blog 
or the button on my sidebar 
I receive a small percentage of the sale at no additional cost to you. 

For piecing, I use Aurifil 50/2 
on the 6452 yard cone.
I like 2021 Natural White

I need a new one for this challenge 
but my color on the large cone is out of stock at FQS.

 so I ordered a new one

which is a regional Aurifil distributor near me.
Usually I purchase my thread where they vend at shows.
This time I ordered online, with free shipping,
to have it in time to start on February 1st.

I ordered it on yesterday and received it today!

I am not affiliated in any way with Follow That Thread.
I am just a happy customer.

I do not expect to use a large cone of thread in two months,
as usually one lasts me at least six months,
but it shall be fun to sew down.

If you need to know what Aurifil Thread may be right for you

I do not know how to actually measure how much I use in two months
so I drew this circle of the circumference of the bottom of my new cone 
on this graph paper.

I will draw another circle at the end of February and one at the end of March.

I do not expect to use more than about a third of this cone in that time.

I will keep sewing with this scone until it runs out and see how long it lasts.

Happy Sew-Down, Y'all!

Just caught up on your posts. You wrote a wonderful one for the I Like Thursday. SO many wonderful things especially getting your stitching/life mojo back! I love seeing food photos...delicious, all of it. I'm a King Arthur recipe fan. Meanwhile, good luck now with the stitching. You are well kitted out!

That's a great way to measure how much thread you're using - I have a cone I've already started and was gong to weigh it before and after but I like this idea! Have fun using your thread :-)
