Losing My MindSeptember 8, 2008 at 7:03 pm | Posted in Uncategorized | 3 Comments
I thought of some more things that I wanted to blog about and instead of editing my last post, I just thought I’d write a new one.
Has anyone ever been able to scoop up any Silkweaver’s Solos on the day they’re posted? I haven’t been able to score one yet, until last week. At 12:02 I was on the site, and selected a lovely piece of 28ct Cashel that I HAD TO HAVE wanted. 12:02 and the damn thing was gone! I swear somebody gets over there and does a mass “select” and then just weeds out their cart. Anyway, I click off the site in disgust. On Thursday I’m back over there buying some Frenzy for Hallowscornu and thought I’d try a small piece of Days Gone By too. Just for the heck of it, I click on the Solos and lo and behold, my piece is there and is available. WOOHOO! Is this not beautious????
Now a question for you all. Do any of you have any reaaaaalllly old DMC? Some of my DMC dates back to the 70’s when I first started stitching. When my mom passed away 11 years ago, I acquired all of her DMC which is also from the 70’s and 80’s. I interspersed hers with mine in my bobbin boxes but I can tell which are hers from her writing and how neatly her bobbins are wound. I know that sometime in the past, DMC changed their dyes and I’m wondering how the old compares with the new. And maybe it’s my imagination, but I swear the older stuff is as soft as silk!
And oh yeah, Yankee Candles has a new Halloween fragrance this year called Boo-Nilla! I just ordered a jar of it and my fave Sparking Vanilla from www.candlestomydoor.com today.
