This morning I took the subway to a place I’ve never been before – just some station rather far away from the center of Moscow. Then I waited for 15 minutes in the middle of the hall, and then some young person showed up with a plastic bag, gave it to me, took the money (300 rubles exactly, which is about 4 euros and change), said “happy new year!” and disappeared.
And this is how I got a huge amount of wonderful threads for my little stitching hobby, that otherwise would sooner or later end up in the garbage.
I haven’t really been stitching for that long, but I am proud to say that so far, I haven’t bought any new threads. I’ve done twice before what I did this morning – bought a bunch of leftovers from strangers on the Internet. And for now, this is more than enough; I have plenty of materials to stitch and plenty of ideas.
I’ll keep you guys posted!
So, here is just a gentle reminder for you guys:
whatever it is that you need right now, someone somewhere probably has it and doesn’t need it.
