Tap on the adorable turtle, on my side bar, if you would like to join us in the turtle trot hosted by Claudette. Certainly inspirational in motivation to get multiple projects done.

Now to the best husband ever!!! Hobby Lobby has been blowing out their Artiste threads. Too bad it took a massive sale to catch my attention. Threads are color fast variegated and 100% egyptian cotton. Very soft to work with. Dye lots do vary. I also belong to the Stitch From Stash yearly event. In trying to stay within the budget allowed I bought 49 skeins with money I earned from ebay sales and credits earned from finishing projects with the SFS guidelines. DH needed some paint from Hobby Lobby. I printed some coupons and off we went on a paint expedition. I planned to buy some more of the sales threads. Gathered up more colors. I truely did not realize how many skeins I had in the basket. DH had been telling me to empty the racks and get it over with. The poor cashier counted up the skeins, tapped in the total and I nearly fell over. DH never batted an eye and paid for the threads. I was trying to put some back and DH told me happy mothers day. And he was happy he could finally buy me something I really wanted. BEST HUSBAND EVER!!!!
with the 49 skeins I bought a few weeks ago, and the skeins from this past week, we have a total of 303 skeins of floss.
Here is Michelle's latest creation and she is amazing!
Thanks for stopping by and happy stitching!
