I am running out of a color I am using on my Marquoir and decided to get out the bag of my extra thread to see if I maybe already had it. I was thinking while going through this bag once again how rediculous it was. I knew there were colors in there I still needed to add to my thread boxes even. I am now going through them all this week and placing thread on cards that are almost empty or new colors I needed to add to the boxes. I am also going to search for a list of the DMC threads so I can mark down what I have and how many extras I now have to avoid having to search for them. I think I will seperate the extras into small ziploc bags according to numbers to make it easier to locate one when needed.
I am spending long weekends with a good stitching friend who is on vacation with her husband up near our cottage. We always talk about how good it feels just to look in our thread boxes at all these luscious colors. When you get home at the end of the month and read this Sonja, you will know I was thinking of you while organizing!
