Buttonhole Stitch Fun Finished and Artiste Floss

As I stepped into the embroidery aisle at Hobby Lobby, and focused my attention on the lovely colors of artiste flosses, I noticed a shocking, yellow, sale sticker on all of the watercolor, variegated threads I love so much.  Yea!!  At least 40% off, maybe more!  But wait....why are they all at clearence price?
My happiness soon turned to sadness when I asked the woman in the sewing department. They are discontinuing those particular embroidery threads.  Oh no!!
Sooooo, I did the only sensible thing that could be done.  I walked away......
You what!!!?
Just kidding!!  Of course I didn't walk away from clearance price floss!  Instead, I busted out some Christmas cash that I had tucked away for a rainy day and went to town!

And now, here is the finished Button hole wheel stitch project finished.

It sure was a lot of fun!  And now I have plenty of threads to create other projects.  But what project shall I tackle next?  I just can't make up my mind.  Time will tell.

Until another time, have a happy stitching day!
