This week's SBQ

From the Stitching SBQ:
When you stitch from a kit and use the supplied floss do you have leftovers? If so, how much and what do you do with them? If not, do you usually have just enough or do you have to dig into your stash to finish?

I usually do have leftover floss because I'm pretty careful when using it. I only toss away leftover pieces shorter than my finger.

I never know what to do with leftovers, especially if from one of the kits, where the floss isn't DMC-numbered. So the leftovers usually just sit in a very pretty lump and get pushed in with the kit leftovers - pattern and picture - in case, just one day, somebody else might want to do this pattern.

So yes, somewhere in a box, packed neatly away, are all my 'left-overs' waiting for their chance to come out and be played with again. I know there's an island for misfit toys - may be there is an island for leftover kits too?
