ann kelle aurifil thread kit

ann kelle aurifi thread kit

I have some exciting news to share with you!  I created a custom Aurifil thread kit, full of my favorite colors! Aurfil has SO many gorgeous colors, so it was kinda hard narrowing down the colors. For a couple of seconds, I considered having an all pink kit, but I thought that would be totally unfair to my other color friends. In the end, we decided to coordinate the kits with my Remix prints. There are two sizes to choose from. The big set includes 12 colors (1422 yards each) and the small set includes 10 colors (220 yards each).  The kits are popping up in stores. Be sure to ask your local quilt shop about them!

DIY Photo Booth by Studio DIY / ann kelle

Every week I share things I’m thankful for in a column called “Hello, Friday.” Whether it’s a list, a story or a picture, always at the heart of it is thankfulness.

So, this week zipped on by. I took off from work on Memorial Day. Like completely took off and didn’t work. It was great. I plan to do that more often. However, I was confused for the rest of the week. I thought Tuesday was Monday, Wednesday was Tuesday, etc. I also forgot to blog on Wednesday . . . oops! Anyhow, here are some things I’m thankful for this week.

- Last weekend was my best friend’s birthday. It was a full day of celebrating and so much fun!

- I purchased Snapdragons for the first time this week. I was confused, because they didn’t look anything like a dragon to me, until some showed me how to make them talk

- banana taffy

- my Daddy’s barbecue. It’s so, so good!

- little brothers that check on their big sisters

- God’s goodness and faithfulness

summer days

- going forward, even in fear

This week kinda flew by! I missed seeing everyone at Quilt Market. For most of the week, I was in New York. Traveling always leaves me in a place of gratitude . . . arriving to my destination safely, a place to sleep, etc. and left thinking “there’s no place like home.” Here are a couple of other things I’m thankful for this week:

- my booth at Quilt Market had pink walls

- the Robert Kaufman team

- New York City in the evening. It sparkles. 

- holding a newborn baby

- eating French food almost EVERY day!

- seeing old friends

- being back in Nashville

ferris wheel / ann kelle

Every week I share things I’m thankful for in a column called “Hello, Friday.” Whether it’s a list, a story or a picture, always at the heart of it is thankfulness.

This week was a roller coaster of a week. Full of highs and lows. Some weeks are like that. I hope you are good, safe and happy.  Amongst all that was going on this week, here are some things I’m thankful for:

- celebrating with my Mama on her birthday. She’s such a good Mom.

- safety while traveling in the storm.  

- Someone overheard me talking to my Aunt Margaret. When I got on the elevator to leave, she said “A good friend is hard to find.”  I  smiled and told her she was actually my aunt. She replied “well, you’ve got two in one.”  She’s right and those are a blessing.

- bear hugs

answered prayers . . . over and over again

– God’s assurance
