Apologies in advance, it is not like me to complain on my little blog really
but I'm shocked & fed up
* * *
As some of you know, I am trying (very slowly) to build up my stock of DMC threads.
Basically, I go through the official list and buy the numbers I haven't got
so that I have the whole collection!
Stitcher will know exactly what I'm on about, so I'm not going to worry
if this is insane or mad :D

So yesterday I visited my LNS (Hobby Craft, for the UK reader).
It is not the best shop for cross stitching as they only sell kits but
for ribbon, buttons & threads, you can find the basics.
So, I had my list and bought 16 skeins of DMC I didn't have.
I was quite happy & in a sad way,
quite looking forward to some "bobbinating"
(yep, it comes with the territory when you are a stitcher!)
until I arrived at home & checked the receipt...
£0.90 per skein??
It used to be £0.80 a few weeks ago!!
I always found it expensive, but really? Nearly £1!!
How come in USA you can have the same product for $ 0.40???
I mean the stuff is made in France and UK is just next door...
Am I the only one to think 90p is dear for a skein of floss?
* * *
Well, let's just say my LNS won't be seeing me in a hurry and
I might place a bulk order from the USA instead!
What a rip off :(
Okay, rant over.... apologies to everyone
I feel better already for sharing my frustration with you all :D
Aren't you lucky?

An other little issue I'm having at the moment too,
I can't seem to settle on a project.
I have 2 Halloween smalls that are now gathering dust somewhere,
2 Christmas smalls that I don't feel tempted to finish for now,
my mum's big project that I really wanted to finish for Christmas... which could be for next year now!
What is wrong with me??
I want to stitch but don't know what to stitch
and seem to be losing interest half way through a project.
Any advice?? for Mii?
