Healthy Addictions

filo di seta del ricamo
embroidery floss

Embroidery floss is my new drug of choice and the good news is...it only cost $.39 a fix! Imagine being able to purchase everything you need for a project and not spending more than $10...you may even be able to get away with spending under $5.

Standing in front of the DMC Embroidery Floss display is like standing at the bottom of a pantone rainbow....your creative juices take flight and before you know it you have dropped 25 tiny bundles of color in to your basket and you have not even spent $10!

When I got home dizzy from my fix I realized in my floss infused high that I had left out the basics...black and white!
...and guess what my next project is?
I had to go back to my dealer for some crack I mean BLACK!

LOL! I can see you now, on your hands and knees, eagerly hoarding all the colors under the sun in your basket feeling so proud that you're getting away with a steal. I totally love that kind of high, especially since I'm quite frugal on my daily expenditures.

Whatever are you making? I sure hope you get your, ahem, crack fix before you tweak out;-)

Lydia...You know there are not too many urges that can be satisfied at this price...we should try and find some more!
My next project...using only black?....I will give a clue to the Clueless Crafter, it is something to wear...cross stitched of course!
