It's no secret that I'm a big fan of HM Queen Elizabeth II, so I was thrilled when Aurifil announced they were releasing a thread collection in honour of the Platinum Jubilee. The box reads: "The Platinum Jubilee Collection is Aurifil's humble tribute to Queen Elizabeth II. This year, we celebrate her success and achievements throughout her 70 years of service. Her fierce nature, resilience, and compassion have set a strong example, inspiring a new generation of leaders."
Inside the commemorative box is an array of colours fit for a queen: neutrals, plus gold, silver, platinum and of course, a very regal purple. The response to the collection has been very enthusiastic. Clearly I am not the only admirer.
