Too funny! by Joan Erickson
Had to share this with people "in the know"! On Craig's list there was a post for embroidery thread for sale (this was amazing just for the fact DH showed it to me, when he's always saying I don't need more stitching stuff!). Anyway, it was a good deal: $20 for 120 skeins of floss (some...
