How many different brands of “complete” embroidery floss sets do you own? How do you keep track of it? (i.e., spread sheet program, index cards, palm pilot, etc.)
That one is easy. Zero. I do not own any complete sets. I only buy the floss I need when I kit up a project. Keeping track of them is just as easy – they all go onto bobbins and into a 99 cent box from WalMart. That is why I love this hobby – cheap! Now if I could find some way of storing yarn like that….
I don’t normally like to complain, but today I must. The Maritimes are becoming less and less appealling to me. Perhaps it is just the prairie girl in me coming out, but living on the coast is getting to be far too wet. It has been raining since non-stop since Monday. The rain doesn’t normally bother me as I can usually drive everywhere, but this week Scott is gone back to Ontario to get our things – leaving me without a vehicle. This morning walking Kimber to school was the worst. It is literally an eight minute walk to school, across a field to the school ground. This morning the feild was flooded. ARG! We could have walked around, but that is a half-hour walk, in the pouring rain, and I really was not interested. So I ended up carrying the girls across the least flooded area I could find. Lauryn & I did take the long way home, and that was just miserable. One day being rain free this week would do wonders for my mood. I realize that it could be snow but I think at this point I would rather it was – at least one can walk ON TOP of snow. Sigh. At least my coffee tastes good today. I guess I need to buy some rubber boots.
