at least she had time to finish her project

This was published today in the Rochester, MN Post-Bulletin:

A St. Charles woman was sentenced to 30 days in jail by Judge Burt Eaton for stealing 20 cents worth of embroidery floss.

According to the Consumer Price Index, that's $3.13 in today's prices. Just an interesting bit of embroidery-related news to brighten your day :)
