Thanks for that, Trudie. I went and looked at their Ebay store and it looks okay. Maybe some limitations on the colours though. It seems like our American friends may just be our floss saviours!

And no, I'm not stitching on my new couch yet!!!! It's actually my parents-in-law's old one and they're still choosing their new one, so we've been waiting for that to happen. But now I don't think it's going to happen for a LOOOOOONG time because my sister-in-law has just been diagnosed with breast cancer and so my mother-in-law has gone to be with her and will be away indefinitely. The poor thing, it's so awful. Her operation is tomorrow. So, I think the last thing we're worrying about is the new couch, even though it does mean no stitching for now.

How dreadfull Allana . Hopefully she will make a good recovery . Does she stitch ?
Its a great saviour in stressfull times. Look I find I stitch best on a solid upright hardback chair. Much better for the old back . It sounds like you and Tami will have to do a deal than . I am hoping my daughter will bring me back a Thea Gouveneer kit called Amsterdam . I have always found the kits are the best deals for us Oz girls . Nice to have it a bit cooler hey !

Happy Stitching

Yeah, thank god for that! This weekend was absolutely lethal. Actually she does stitch, I should remind her to do some, to calm her mind. Thanks for the thoughts, Trudie.

I wish I was independently wealthy so that I could get a list of what you girls needed and send it to you...I just stole a corner out of the living room. My house is so very little...really it is...LESS then a 1000sq ft..so if I can squeeze a corner out then I know you girls can.... Laughing

Fenny thank you for the offer...I would love for you to come help me..I forgot what pattern are you working on...and did you say if you liked Anchor or DMC better?

Thank you very much, Tami.

Trudie, whereabouts in Oz are you by the way? Or did you already tell me that somewhere?

Okay, so Bundaberg, Hervey Bay sort of area. That's nice up there. I've got friends in Hervey Bay, and we're currently planning a diving trip out to Fraser Island to see the manta rays, I can't wait! Glad things are cooler for you too. Cool We've been making bulk lots of iced coffee and mango smoothies with extra ice!! Cool
