2/26/08: What is your cross stitch weakness? (i.e., What do you have to have when you see it, even if you are supposed to be on the Wagon?) (Submitted by Rachel)
Like Kathryn, I cannot resist a sale. Well, I can, but it's extremely difficult and usually involves physical restraint. But you take 10, 20, 30% off, and I am salivating at the thought. I also have a hard time resisting things that have personal meaning to me, or something that connects with an inside joke, such as the Sue Hillis Chart, "Love You More". I'm pretty picky about what I like personally, though I have a weakness for Celtic designs or lighthouses. I comfort myself with putting it on my wishlist, which is ALMOST as good as buying it, but not quite. And if it's something I think I won't be able to get later or is a limited edition, I usually end up buying it.
But by far my biggest weakness is colored flosses, mostly because they're relatively inexpensive and I can buy a couple without breaking the bank. I just cannot resist pretty colors, especially shades of blue (my favorite color). Sometimes I have no idea what I'm going to stitch with them, I just know I need to have them.
