One Little Fish In The Pond!

Hehehe, guess what I got in the mail yesterday??!! Thread! Not just any thread, but Aurifil 28wt.


Look at those yummy colors! I just couldn't wait to start quilting my koi, so I jumped in the pond!

I love the fish and how the thread stands out on the navy fabric. 

I got part of the second one done, but I was slowed down with some machine issues. It might be time to take the machine in for a little cleaning and service!

Unfortunately, the second and third koi are going to have to wait until I get home from work tonight. :(

I'm linking up today with A Quilt Story for Fabric Tuesday and Free Motion by the River for Linky Tuesday.
