On Saturday, it was surprising to get my floss from 123Stitch in the mailbox. I wasn’t surprised for the reason you might be thinking; such as, trolls attacking my mailbox and stealing the precious floss because if they didn’t all of the troll kingdom would sink into oblivion and thus I would never get my floss.
Just a simple skeptical thought. They did send a confirmation e-mail that specified I would get my floss Saturday. I did read those exact words last week. I just didn’t think it’d actually get here on time. I’ve recently been ordering things (because like any sane introvert I dislike shopping and crowds) and getting them a day late. Especially, if it’s to being delivered on a Saturday. I won’t see that order until Monday.
To get this order actually on Saturday not only surprised me but made my weekend. I was able to finish a column over the weekend!
I really love this stitch. The variations of thread colors are wonderful. I used many different colors in this latest column and flows seamlessly here. When this project first started I knew I would love this pattern. I did have thoughts that I wouldn’t keep up with it for long though. I figured I’d get bored with it earlier. Now, I can’t believe I had the passing thought. This stitch changes so often, with the colors, that I can’t wait to stitch on and see what will show up next!
As I’m moving on to the next column to see what comes next, I’m glad I bought two spools of the Kreinik.
Each spool is 11 meters long and I think it should take care of me for at least a bit.
I got a gift card from Michaels for my birthday that I’m dying to use. I need to make a day of it on a weekend soon. Maybe by then I’ll need more of the thread. Unfortunately, as I was cutting some of the thread to put on my project card, I came across this midway.
Can we say quality control alert puh-lease! When I hit this mess I knew I had to be in a nightmare because what I was seeing could not be real. Goodness knows I hope this is the only fraying I’ll see in the spool. It’s only a quarter of a meter long, but that’s enough to have my heart sinking!
Good thoughts for the rest of the spool. (^_^) Hummmmmmm.
Anyone ever buy something that turned out not to be what it should and it ruined everything? I’m tailoring the question just to your stitching/crafting projects, but if you have a story on something else I’d love to hear it!
Have a great week and keep on stitching!
