After work I headed to Pat Catan's (a craft store) with a 50% off coupon. I wanted some of these floss holders as I could not find the ones I had bought years and years ago. I want to hand dye some floss so these hold the floss so it doesn't get all tangled.
I saw this floss. I bought one skein to see how it stitches up. It is a bit shinier than the regular DMC floss and I think it could add another bit of interest to the AC/DC piece. It comes in about 10 colors so if I like it I will have to get more. The hot pink and purple were gorgeous.
I am showing it next to the regular floss so you can sort of see the difference.
I spent way too much time wandering around Pat Catan's. I finally made myself leave and next thing you know I was wandering around the library. I had some books, a CD and DVD's that I took back, but then I wandered over to the new books and then to the CDs, etc. Next think I knew it was twenty after five! I headed home gathered up trash and the recycling for todays pick up, watered the seeds and canna, cooked some dinner, did some dishes, and did a load of laundry. Yes, life was interfering with my stitching time! I only managed to get the "BE" done. I say it is better than nothing!
Here is what they look like this morning. They have double in size since Saturday. I will just have to keep a watch out for the beetles that like to eat the leaves. I think they show up in July.
My Shasta daisies that I planted from seed two years ago are just covered with buds and have just started to bloom.
