In 2008 I fell in love with a trio of dress designs from Vervaco, New York, Paris and Moscow. Unfortunately, being Vervaco, they were only available as kits.
New Years Day 2009 I started Moscow. I was well on my way to a quick finish (the combination of Holidays from work and Summer Cricket working its usual magic) and then the kit ran out of floss. It was a specialty LANA floss that, like Whisper, fuzzies up after you finish stitching with it.
Later I found the paperwork in the kit where to send for replacement floss. I asked for 6 strands of white Lana and 1 thread of beige Lana.
Somewhere around 8-10 weeks later as I was moving house, the envelope arrived with 6 strands of Beige Lana and 1 strand of White Lana.
I moved house many times after that, never quite getting the project and the envelope with the threads together at the same time until now, February 2013. I have stitched up the one thread of White Lana and have sent off for more yet again 🙂
