I’ve gotten LOTS of floss from blog readers lately.
This BIG box came from Canada! It made it through customs and right to my heart.
I’m in love. I can’t thank my British Columbia blog reader enough. It was such a joy.
I was sorting to my heart’s content. Seriously. I don’t know what it is about sorting and organizing floss that makes me so happy.
Poor Kelli and Kayla were my helpers.
and Georgia too. You can see her cute little painted toe nails.
After that was sorted….there was more. Lots more.
See this haul of stuff that came in my mail from Mary Ann. See was cleaning out crafts and thought of me. There was lots of fun stuff including the blue bag you see….it’s all embroidery floss!!! I’m in stitching shape.
No fear…we tackled that blue bag of floss too!!
WOWZY. Can you say FLOSS??
I had more though. This came from Kathy in NV.
This was floss that was her mother’s from long ago. Much of it was Anchor and Coats and Clark. Kayla said, “If you’re looking for a home for floss, I can take some to school.” She explained that periodically through the school year they have days when there isn’t regular instruction. On those days she often teaches the kids how to make friendship bracelets like she did as a kid. This floss was perfect for that. She told me the should I ever get more floss in, she’d take some more. Well that’s when Kelli said, “Wait…I could use some”. Bahahaha. They are so funny.
We had a great silly sort of afternoon…no stress…just sitting and chatting. It’s what this momma needed. The little pink toe nails on this was a smile I needed too.
After we were done sorting floss the consensus was that I have ALMOST all of the colors. I thought I was about 25 short then Kelli informed me that DMC came out with a new bunch of colors 1-35. I guess I’ll have to be on the lookout for them. I never planned on getting a complete set but now that I’m this close I think I’ll look for a big sale at Joann’s and pick up the rest.
Thanks to the ladies that sent me thread and other goodies. It sure was a fun day and the gift will keep giving as I use the thread. It was so thoughtful of you.
