Default Weekend sewing...how many bobbins?

I sewed about 2-1/2 bobbins of thread yesterday...more bobbins than I have used in the last many weeks...felt so good to sew. I don't know if I will find time to sew today or not. Busy getting my house to sell, and need to do sorting and packing. At least I had quality sewing time yesterday with my friends, and have to be happy with that.
How many bobbins did you sew with this weekend?

Wish I could add to this list. Yesterday I was at a writer's conference in Wye Mills, MD - all day, but met great people and my new writing friend is a quilter too! Amazing how we find each other.

I use Aurifil thread so I don't have to change the bobbin nearly as often. I sewed for 4 or 5 hours yesterday - never ran out of bobbin thread. It's like magic.

I did a lot of machine embroidery this week and lost count of how many bobbins. While that machine was busy I fired up the Featherweight and did a couple other projects. Only used 2 bobbins on that.

It was a 2 bobbin weekend for me so far. I am busy sewing blocks together for a 95x95 inch Spiderweb top.

I, too, use Aurifil. I use about one bobbin a day for piecing in the afternoon. I have just started back to FMQ in the mornings. I use one bobbin for that.
