I kept all my threads in a plastic jar, and every time I finish a white or black thread I go buy more and come back home with other colors in case .. So one day I decided to sort my threads and I found out how much I got from each color..! Much more than I need. But who can blame me, I can't resist colors in anything, you should see my embroidery floss, or my crafts paints, or my fabrics, or my cards and papers .... Need I say more? I need therapy!
