Pretty Threads are like Fabric - You can't have just one

Why buy one when you can buy the whole lot at a discounted price?  It innocently starts with just one spool or one fat quarter and you think, this is so pretty.  It happens in quilting and embroidery and other craft areas, you get hooked. 

I have an embroidery machine and a few spools of thread.  I couldn't make that much because I had limited amounts of colors.   Along comes a new friend that decided it's time to get out of the embroidery and sewing business.  One wants to sell very discounted (about a 1/4 of the retail price) and the other one wants to buy, what a perfect combination.  Add the name Robison-Anton, YLI and more and I'm sold.  The YLI Serger thread box is stuffed.  I never knew there were so many variations of red and green.  There were a few that were a little older but she threw them in for free.   I can't wait to try them out soon.  Add these to the punch embroidery thread lot I won at the auction and I think I now have enough thread to create.  Just in time for Christmas.

Thanks for stopping by!
