My tale of woe involves spending most of the last 24 hours either puking or, well... you know. Bloody food poisoning.

I did get a start on Susie's towel though before the illness hit, so that's a bright point.

I have a question for everyone. I just got a little box of Thread Heaven. I was wondering if any of you use it and like it, or if this is something that I should be avoiding. I like the idea of using a thread conditioner/protectant, but I've never used this stuff before. So, what do you guys think?

PaleAngelLex - I have used for 4 years and use it on all my floss.  I love it.  It just makes the thread move smoothly through the fabric and it even makes the cheap cheap floss I bought when I first started embroidering work better. I would not avoid it at all.

Then I'm sold. I dislike that stuff.

Hehe, after reading all of this I bought a box at Joann's!  I can't wait to try it out Cheesy

Also... would anyone be interested in a spreadsheet checklist inventory for their DMC floss?  I made one for myself in Numbers -- it came in very handy today.  If anyone else shows any interest I'll also convert it to Excel & post it for download on my site.

I actually just bought a box after hearing all the raves on here. I haven't used it that much yet, but it seems like my floss tangles less often and the tangles are easier to get out.

That inventory sounds like it could be very helpful. Please do post it!

I'm not happy, I'm cheerful. There's a difference.

I'm a big fan of Thread Heaven!  Last week Joann's had buy one/get one free on the entire notions wall, so I came home with two!  And I'll go through both! Cheesy

And the DMC sheet sounds great!  Thanks!

Feel better!  We came down with the H1N1 flu in our house and it was AWFUL.  I didn't get it, but I took care of everyone.  Fortunately, I can report that the H1N1 swine flu is much shorter lasting than regular flu.
