I'm in Thread Heaven! My DH helped me unearth boxes marked "yarns, needlework threads, and charts" in the garage. They've been buried almost two years, since our move to FL. I've been desperate to find them...and living on DMC, Anchor, NPI silks and Au Ver a Soie alone!! Woe is me!! I really have had a dilemma because I'm a Chatelaine Designs Stitcher, and Martina uses lots of Waterlilies; and, I'm a sampler stitcher, and I need my GASTs, etc... I've tried to cope nicely without spending any money while I've waited and ferreted out the right boxes. My lucky day came on Saturday, and now I'm delighted and sleep-deprived. Also found a box filled with stitching magazines of all sorts dating back to the 1980's...this is a stitchers' treasure trove, so you know I've been up reading and marking pages. Anyway, I'm posting the following picture of some of my newly found stash, and then I'm off to bed. Someone, please be happy for me. This really feels so good and I've needed a good thing after the last few years I've been having!!
