There’s always a first time for everything. I seem to have had a few ‘firsts’ lately.
First occasions can be quite daunting at times (think the first day at a new job!) but they also give us the opportunity to try new experiences and products, learn new skills and meet people.
So here I am writing my first blog and using Aurifil thread for the first time.
As you can see, I am hand-sewing hexagons to make a bag, using 40 weight Cotton Mako. I like the way the thread glides easily through the fabric without twists and knots. And I am also happy that each spool comes in its own cellophane wrapper so that it is kept clean while it sits on the shop shelf.
Now that I’ve finished this bag, I’m keen to complete another one using the same pattern which has been in UFO status for longer than I’m prepared to divulge!
