36 feet of crafty goodness

Ummmmm, I may have a problem. JoAnn's had a sale on their floss (4 for a dollar) and then I had a 10% off coupon. I bought EVERY color DMC makes. My receipt was 36 feet long! The cashier was telling people over the PA system that she had someone buying "all of this floss" and "that the receipt was 36 feet long". The customers behind me were a little freaked out. I'm good on floss for a couple of months, unless I want to do something in just one color, then I'm a little screwed.

You're so cute! I love a good sale. Now I'm going to be so jealous of your color selection.

That is truly amazing!
I soooo want to do that! 36 feet of receipt!
And all you have to do is spent the next six weeks organising them - *drools at the thought* :)

you should stitch yourself a scarf or something out of the receipt. That is crazy. I walked out of joann's cause they said there was a30 piece of floss limit so I left all of my lovely floss on their desk..
You look fab btw!!

Hello - I am Pam and I have a problem!!

Fun part was helping out the cashier line up all the floss so she could zap them with the bar code gun. Good Times! Lets not do it again anytime soon honey! ;-)
