Not that anyone has asked, but I'm doing quite well on the stitching front this weekend! I have completed 2 ... yes, that's 2 ... smalls & will be starting another today : ) I could have started it earlier this morning due to the fact that I woke up at 4 a.m. all bright eyed & bushy tailed, but I'n not sure the fabric I picked out for it is just right, & I could't go digging through my fabric to see if I had anything else since John decided to sleep upstairs last night & rummaging around up there would've woken him.
I am making this interruption post to show you how I store my DMC floss. I know a lot of people unskein their floss & wrap it on bobbins. I must admit that this puzzles me. So much extra work! In my stitching life #2, I developed a bag & store method that I find quite satisfactory. I store my DMC floss skeins in small snack baggies along with an index card to back them which helps keep the baggies upright : ) I chose to place 4 different floss numbers, all in numerical order of course, in each snack baggie & made labels for each one showing the numbers. I then file the baggies numerically in 3 plastic shoe boxes with lids. The floss skeins I need for a project are thus very easy to find & put away.
