Hello, My Name is Lesli and I am a New Start Addict

After finishing Coral, I sat down and decided to sort through my piles and piles and piles of FLOSS!

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:

Tarot- The Lovers by Stephanie Pui-Mun Law 

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!  :)

eh he he he.... You are a proper crafter! Also, that's way too good a price to pass up! No, seriously - I'd have a few of every color if I had a price like that!

Also, I have that chart! I can't wait to start mine! :)

I am a true believer in taking advantage of a sale.

I love the way you have stored your floss,this looks much easier than bobbins, and also they take up much less room

Enjoy your new start.

Its true, you can't pass up a floss sale like that. And its something that will keep forever. I have a box of floss that my Mom bought about 70 years ago and the floss is just fine and could be used if I wanted to. Starting a bunch of projects is the best part. Who cares if we ever get them done. lol

I can relate to being a new start addict! It's good to know that we're not alone in our addiction, LOL. I can't blame you for stocking up on floss at that price, it's such a great deal!

I'm still going to meetings for my "new start addiction"... DH is a great support to me he said when he met me that I couldn't start anything new anymore unless a. I finish something else or b. It's for a wedding or a birth...
Got this very big box at home with lots of projects where I only put a couple of stitches in... Sometimes life just gets in the way of stitching and I forgot all about my new projects :)

A floss sale is way too good to pass up! Well done on kitting up some new projects - can't wait to see them started.

Lesley said...

I agree. A floss sale like that would have me running (and I don't do running these days!) to the store :)
Your RAK'd chart is gorgeous,what a lovely thing for your friend to do.
Now I am looking forward to seeing updates on it.

Maureen said...

no wonder you couldn't resist kitting this piece up - OMG it is gorgeous! love it and DMC at 25cents - i would buy the shop up - here our dmc is about the equivalent to $1.30 a skein

Anne said...

You're so cute Lesli! I love that you "vowed" to never buy more floss!! Can't wait to see you start your new projects!!

Lesleyanne said...

A great price, no wonder you couldn't pass up the opportunity of more floss. Would love to know what other HAEDs you kitted up.

Meari said...
