Favourite Things Friday: AURIfil Makò 50-weight Thread

Man is fond of counting his troubles, but he does not count his joys. If he counted them up as he ought to, he would see that every lot has enough happiness provided for it. –Fyodor Dostoevsky

It's official. I've become a thread snob. My order of AURIfil Makò 50-weight thread came on Wednesday. I'm in love. And I want every color.

Yesterday I dropped in at the shop where I got my machine and got enough bobbins to have one for every color of thread. And I'm highly motivated to get the ditch-work done on the Pinwheel Sampler so I can stop using the off-white thread and start playing with the pretty colored threads. Only a few more ditches to stitch . . .

Oh, my! What a treasure trove.

Love the idea of a bobbin for every colour. Have often wished for it too. Of course then there would be a storage problem!
Cheers

I'll have to take a picture of our Aurifil drawer at work for you.

I want, I want, lol. I'm hoping to order some this week.

I havent tried Aurifil yet ..someone suggested it to me recently but I ended up getting YSI ? instead because they had the variegated thread I wanted.

But..I hear they are the bomb of threads and your stash looks so pretty I want to run out now and get some for myself!
