Eterna Silk Floss

Hi,
I used to read this group on a daily basis, but haven't visited in many, ma
ny years. I lost my job (twice!!), found a new job, then retired a few yea
rs ago. Unfortunately, due to shoulder, back, and neck problems I haven't
stitched much since then. So, I'm purging my stash.
Does anyone remember the Eterna Silk Floss?? I have the entire collection
and was wondering if anyone remembers how much it cost. I'm getting some s
tuff ready to donate to Good Will, and was curious as to how much I could c
laim on next year's taxes. Any help is appreciated.
I have been knitting over the past few years, but only for a short time eac
h day due to the above-mentioned problems. I do so wish I could stitch aga
in, as I have soooo many UFOs, as I'm sure all of you do, that I'd love to
complete.
I remember many of the names that still post here, and was sorry to hear ab
out the passing of Jim Cripwell. I always enjoyed his posts and hearing ab
out his projects.
Anyway, greetings to all from Phoenix, Arizona. I'll check back in a few d
ays to see if anyone remembers these silk threads. Until then, happy stitc
hing!

Hey Cheryl. Before you purge everything, you may want to read my post about stitching while disabled. You might still be able to stitch in some capaci ty with a few modifications!
That said, I'm also disabled and had to give up certain kinds of crafts alt ogether, like knitting and crocheting. I've also given up a lot of my bigge r needlework pieces because I can't commit to that many hours of stitching when I'm in so much upper body pain. I do still enjoy stitching on a smalle r scale and on a more limited basis, and I've reduced my stash to patterns I simple *have* to stitch. Any pattern I purchased that doesn't absolutely sing to me when I get around to actually sewing it, I donate to charity.
Good luck with your journey forward, whether you keep stitching or not!

Thanks for telling me your story and for the link. My conditions are due t o walking with crutches for most of my life. Now that I've gotten older, i t seems it takes longer to recover from exericise or a fall. I will try so me of your tips to see if they help relieve the aches and pains. My proble m is, I don't want to stop once I get going!!
I have not purged everything, but have certainly pared down my stash. Ther e are a few patterns that I won't give up, and I still have one very large UFO that I may try to work on.
Anyway, thanks again for the tips, and stay well.
Cheryl
