Can you tell I've been collecting embroidery floss for awhile? Ever since I was a little girl and my grandmother taught me to embroider. Some of these go back to then. Sometimes I snap up batches at a flea market or garage sale. My collection now stands at almost 1,000. Would I turn down new colors? Never! I still need to arrange the colors better, but at least now they are in 4 cases instead of 10. If you too, love embroidery floss, I have a secret for you. Visit the fly fishing department of a big box store... they have better containers for less than the crafts department!!
What does this have to do with fuchsias? Well, maybe someday I can embroider a few of them. Meanwhile, I promised to create a special piece for a friends Christmas present and the next thing I knew, I was looking for the right colors of floss... I'll be working on live fuchsias later today.
