That first cup of coffee this morning in my favorite Christmas mug met the skein of DMC 216 that I was using to finish up the flowers at the top of my LHN "Battle Hymn of the Republic". I don't think I have ever done this before. I ran to soak it and changed The water. I was happy to find that I had I more threaded needle which ended up being enough to finish what needed finishing. All was not lost. I am thinking May finish in time to frame and put under the tree for hubby to put in his office.
