Too funny!

Had to share this with people "in the know"!
On Craig's list there was a post for embroidery thread for sale (this was amazing just for the fact DH showed it to me, when he's always saying I don't need more stitching stuff!). Anyway, it was a good deal: $20 for 120 skeins of floss (some used). I went to pick it up last night and had to snicker. On the box someone had written, "needle point string". LOL!

My hubby also calls my stitching "needlepoint," and my floss "twine." I hav e tried to correct him on his terminology to no avail. Awhile back he told someone that I "sew", which they took to mean that I taylored clothing. I l aughed and said, "babe, I'm a Fiber Artist!" He gave me this blank stare an d said, "what's that?" LOL
Wow, people REALLY don't get this hobby, do they?
Congrats on the floss! I hope when I'm dead and gone (or just can't stitch anymore), some other Fiber Artist will acquire and appreciate my leftover s tash.

LOL! I hope you enlightened him! DH usually gets the terminology correct, if he cares to. Sometimes he says it wrong just to bug me.
No, I don't think they do.
Yeah, me, too. Although DD will probably take it...if and when she has time to stitch, being more into her horse than anything else. But at least she does do some stitching and knows the effort that goes into it, so I don't think my stash will go to waste.
