I've always known that I have been a little obsessed about color, but I found my original box of embroidery thread in the depths of one of my storage bins that was nicely maintained even in my preteen days.
I remember dutifully writing the color number on each tab, so I would know what I ran out of.
In case there was any doubt about this being an oldie I found my lovely signature from that time, which always ended in "frenz-4-ever!" Lucky me. I am still friends with this lovely lady, whose name is not shown. I am glad that I don't need to get much embroidery floss as I embark on an upcoming project.
