Yes, you're reading it correctly, SINS! As in: Stuff I'll Never Stitch. This cross stitch net language is very popular among stitchers, specially to those who have so much stash that one lifetime is not enough to stitch their acquisition.
Last Wednesday, I was in a hurry to buy DMC threads because I wanted to beat the February 1 price increase and to my big surprise, the store where I usually buy my threads because their price is the cheapest already imposed the increase. I was so mad because they didn't even inform me. So I called my stitching friend who is also planning to buy plenty and told her what happened. She then called another store and told me to go there because theirs is still the old price. So off I went to that store. And here's the DMC threads that I bought, almost 500 skeins (my wallet was crying):
Here's showing the metallic threads:
And while the owner was attending to my list, I browsed through their old stocks of patterns and some kits and I almost jump with joy when I found these Teresa Wentzler's charts:
Aren't these two are steals?.. But upon seeing that it contains so many backstitches, I think that it will become SINS!
And this kit is so cute that I grabbed it immediately, costing only P200 ($4.50).
That's all for now friends! Thanks for dropping by :-)
