SBQ: Extra, Extra

When you stitch from a kit and use the supplied floss do you have leftovers? If so, how much and what do you do with them? If not, do you usually have just enough or do you have to dig into your stash to finish? I usually have leftovers. If they are just regular floss, I thow it away. Floss is the cheapest part of this endeavor, so I don't worry about saving bits of floss. I do save any specialty threads; their value is obvious. With kits, I only keep the picture of the project and the pattern. You can't keep everything.

Here's a little update on the Enchanted Alphabet. The photo on the left/bottom shows a close-up on the area I'm currently working on.

Very nice. Is this a gift for someone?

Well, Cheryl, I, um, started this for Alexa when she was in utero. And now she's six. I have no idea what I am going to do with it. It will probably just go in the big pile of finishing. Isn't that pathetic?
