I use it, because for the last few years I have been looking for the perfect box or basket to use for projects requiring a lot of different thread colors. I think I've tried just about every stitchy thread organizing technique known to man, but I think that Floss Bags work best for me. I seem to waste less thread that way and I like that I don't have to constantly pull the thread off of its card.
So yesterday, I was putzing around up in the studio when I started looking at a little basket that I was using to hold rings. Well, wudda ya know? It was the exact size that I needed to hold Floss Bags!
I couldn't let this piece of serendipitousness go without celebration, so I started pawing through my stash to find a BA project that would require a lot of Floss Bags so that I could use my new basket. Do you suppose that I am the first stitcher in history to use THAT as an excuse to start something new? Tee hee!
So here's Prairie Moon's Spring Tranin'. I'm stitching this on a gorgeous piece of 28ct. Cafe Kona linen, using two over two. At first I thought I would try one over two, since my two over two stitching has been so "clunky" lately, but this is working out quite nicely: I know it doesn't look like a lot of stitching took place last night, but that little block took me all the way through "P.S. I Love You" (yes, yet again). You can blame Jeffrey Dean Morgan for it. Go right ahead.
