Oh, how I love ruby red grapefruit!

These stitch problems have been plaguing me for weeks and I finally confirmed what the culprit was. (The first two lines on the left are great, the other lines to the right have tension issues.) I can't use Aurifil 2314 50/2 thread in my bobbin, for some reason it causes skipped and loose stitches. It doesn't matter how I adjust my tension settings, or if I change the needle type, I won't get normal stitches until I change to another thread in my bobbin case. Has anyone else experienced this?

I saw some really cool flasks at the #grammys Can't help but wonder who was drinking what... #whatsinyourflask

Another #loveallaroundblock with a pop of green this time.

I used an i-cord bind off for the first time tonight and I really like the way it looks. This little scarf finished up with perfect timing to become a Pinkalicious scarf for my niece's 4th birthday tomorrow!

Another #loveallaroundblock I think I'm getting the hang of this! Thank you @maychappell for a wonderful tutorial❤

Much better... even though I wish I could've lined these points up better. Now on to block 2! #loveallaroundblock #quilting

Well, my first attempt at this #loveallaround block needs more work. Can you see how I messed up my pink hearts in the middle. Now to rip some seams....

Some of our Christmas faves! Tonight we're watching Home Alone. I may have to squeeze in a second one, too. What are your favorite holiday movies? #traditions #hopeyoudidntjustpackcrapJeff
