I bought several bags of embroidery floss from a 5&10 when it was going out of business. There were sandwich bags of a dozen skeins of floss for 50 cents. I bought a large bag full and now have tons of colors I may never use but they often come in handy.
In other sewing, Em's dress is pinned and cut out. I wanted to put in the invisible zipper last night but it was so hot and humid that I was afraid I'd sweat all over it and the fabric is light enough that the fan was blowing it around. I'll try again tonight but I'm not hopeful. We're in the midst of a hot/humid cycle and while it's been really good for the moistness of my skin, not so good for anything else.
Here's Peter Kevin with his Father's Day present. He wanted a saw so we ordered one from a guy in Wisconsin who operates under the name of Bad Axe. (those silly woodworkers). It's from the 1840's and the steel is much thicker and better milled than what we could buy in the stores today. Mr Axe restores them and sells them for what I think of as exhorbitant prices but Pk assures me are not.
Unfortunately, USPs dropped the box and part of the wooden handle broke off. Back into the box it went and right out to the post office. Mr Axe paid for the postage and will fix it and send it back. His reputation for excellent customer service is intact.
