How Cute is This?

If memory serves me, this is one of the first cross stitch projects that Anita started, but what I do remember is this comical story that happened when Anita first joined our group.

Each time we meet we generally bring our stash of floss with us so if anyone needs a colour, someone can almost always accommodate. We all use the clear rectangle floss containers that hold our sorted colours numerically. Jody needed a specific colour number.

So...Bonnie checked her container. No luck. Bonnie checked her bag of unopened skeins. No luck. Tracey checked her container. No luck. Tracey checked her bag of unopened skeins. No luck. Anita said, "Well let me see, I might have it. (Keep in mind, Anita had only just started with us a short time before). She opened her lid, checked the 5 colours in her box, smiled and said, "Nope! Doesn't look like I have it either".

Took us awhile to settle down after that. We still tease her about it, but happily Anita's colour box has grown significantly since that time. Now... if only you saw her yarn collection!
