"(Please try not to notice how I store my Cosmo floss supply. Trying to keep it organized, I realize, is futile.)"
That made me giggle and immediately think of one day at Sit and Sew when I had brought along my embroidery (as had some of the other gals) and I took some friendly flack about the condition of my floss! Some of the girls wind their floss around little cardboard things that are made just for that purpose and have them arranged beautifully by color. I am feeling vindicated that there is as least one other needleworker who shares my bad habit - but I actually don't think she has quite as big a jumble of floss as I do. I figure that if things get too tangled and I'm not able to straighten some of the mess out, floss is cheap and it doesn't bother me to toss out some thread snarls!! However, I certainly don't encourage anyone to do as I do!!!! It isn't pretty!!!
Check out NanaCompany on my sidebar. She takes gorgeous pictures - and has many pictures of her cute little girl. Also, some of older children. A very nice blog.
