UPS brought me a box that was about 2 ft by 3 ft by 1 ft yesterday. I knew what it had to be, and I was excited. As I staggered into the kitchen with it (although not heavy, it was quite bulky), my dearly beloved commented that he thought I'd bitten off more than I could chew.
The little boys opened the box for me. Thor supervised. My box of color bored all three. But look at what I got!
Carolyn, the sewing fanatic, has recommended Atlanta Thread many times. I have been disgusted recently at the downsizing of routinely available spools of thread, and asked my dearly beloved if I could have the 10 assorted colors, or even the 25 assorted colors. When I told him that there was a package of 50 spools (4 times the size of the routinely available ones) for $120, he said, "That's the one I want you to buy." Gents, take notes: this is the proper way to respond when your wife wants something reasonable. Best of all, I ordered Wednesday, and it was here on Friday!
Maybe this angle shows my rainbow better. My dearly beloved suggested that I order a spool of brighter yellow, one of darker red, and four more each of white and black, so I fill all 60 spots on the rack, which was included in the $120 price.
They also included the 6" wooden ruler, although my youngest did comment that they only sent me half a ruler. If you sew, check out Atlanta Thread. If not, have a great weekend, and I'll see you Monday!
