Have been busy but not to busy to notice something about Aunt Lydia's packaging!
Doris Day movies (have a few) been set in my recorder and I noted Doris was in her nightgowns
A lot ... WE have that in common these past few days ... lol ...
I have been relinquished to our home as we had a bit of a scare the other day ...
(Sumatra and T-cup are fine)
Our gas stove was leaking, very serious apparently ... had we turned on anything with a flame
we would have been KABOOM ... yep ... so I had to shop for a new stove ..
Our BOSC was only 5.5 years old ..... We found a Samsung ... it will be here tomorrow!
Nothing lasts for decades anymore ... I would have been happy for 10 years ...
(On appliances) 5.5 years is no DEAL
As I was saying about Aunt Lydia's crochet thread ..
At first I thought "what a deal" looks like a fairly large ball until you begin
crochet and realize it only makes a few flowers or 1 washcloth.
Take into account how much to ship such large packaging ... I ordered 30 and the cost
to ship was triple the amount of the cost of the thread ... .
Will not do that again ..
I unpackaged a new one and this is how big the ball was for # 3.
It would be so It It It much cheaper to ship if they chose a different cardboard cone ..
Apparently I called them the other day and one of their representatives
HAD NEVER RECEIVED ANY CONCERNS .... about their packaging ...
Well I am glad I was the FIRST lol ..
So here is what I have noted ... 1 washcloth cost about $ 9.00
and that is not taking into account I have to crochet it ...
So let's just say this is no DEAL ....
(Cori made this beautiful one below for me)
As much as I adore their crochet threads and colours ...
it is way too costly .... too bulky to ship. Something I pay attention to these days ..
What happened to the good ole days when LIFE seemed so much simpler
and there were deals to be had ..... Surely there is someone who makes a thread # 3
that is less expensive ... Please let me know!
|Doris in her Tiffany gown, and another movie with her in the window lol|
No stove, no cooking and no baking, so what is a girl to do .... Put more Doris Day movies in and stitch away ...
ps like Sumatra and T-cup we are down quite a few lives ... I think I may only have a couple left wink
