Machinery Joy and Color Glee

My wonderful and very cool hubby purchased 
an embroidery machine for me for my b'day!
Truth be known, he's
 interested in embroidery too.

Obviously, it embroiders...

 and of course, it quilts and sews too.
Yay, quilting!

A couple of weekends ago, I went to an embroidery event in McKinney, Texas.  While there, I had the joy of purchasing an array of Glide embroidery thread. 

I filled one box and when I called hubby...

He suggested I fill another.
Well, twist my arm!
There are two spools of 
Robison-Anton in this box.  
Can you spot them?

As a color lover, it was a 
blast picking them out.

The yumminess of these cheerful 
colors created a lot of smiling!

And outright happiness!

Giddiness could be detected for miles around!

So very delicious!

They're currently perched in their permanent home on a shelf behind the embroidery machine where they sit right out in the open for all the world to see (which is mainly me).

I've been sewing quilts and what not with Coats & Clark embroidery thread for many years now. I love the sheen of embroidery thread, so of course, I'll be using these Glide threads for quilting too. Oh yes, embroidery threads are suppose to be for embroidery but I don't exactly follow the rules when it comes to quilting. Not if I can help it! 

May Your Day Be Colorful and Bright,
