Well, as you can see in the photo --I have cleared the competition off of my sewing machine and I am ready to see if all of Jodie's claims about Aurifil threads are true. My quilting treasures deserve the best thread available to hold them together. If Aurifill can do that for me with a little pinache' --I am sold. I am looking forward to winning Pat Sloan's Favorite colors collection. How's that for a positive attitude?!!
