Why do I have piles of floss you ask?
So.... the local craft stores near me often have sales where I can purchase a skein of DMC floss for $0.25-0.28 cents...who can pass that up? Each time they have a sale, my mind goes crazy thinking, "I must get the floss for such and such chart!"
I had pack-ratted away enough floss for 5 or 6 charts. I decided to actually sit down and kit some of them up and make sure I had every color I needed, then make one last floss run to fill in any gaps....and then VOW NEVER TO BUY FLOSS AGAIN (unless I needed it for a current chart but ran out).
What is it they say about the best intentions? :)
Well....I kitted 4 of them up...and then what happened? Sam from the HAED BB RAK'd me one of the charts on my wish list!! Here's a picture of it:

How could I not want to kit this one up!? I've gone through the rest of the floss I have and made my list for the remaining that I need (which I'll get this weekend)...then I PROMISE....I think I promise? that I won't get any more floss again, until I finish at least one more chart!
So I leave you with....a picture of my 4 kitted charts and a bag of all the floss I have left for the other 2 charts I decided not to kit up....yet!
Yes...I'm a new start addict and I love it! :)
