Inspired by this post at montague and this post at Posie gets Cozy, I organized my embroidery floss:
Compared to those two, I have a very small amount of floss (Alicia had over 400 bobbins! Wow!) But it's still nice to see it all lined up. Plus, I figured it would be better to organize them now, rather than wade through a bunch more at some later date -- I don't think I'd have the patience.
I don't know if you can tell from that photo, but I printed labels for all of the bobbins with the DMC number:
(Red embroidery floss got the shaft in the numbering system. Could it be... eeeevil?)
I only ever see DMC these days... when I was a kid, there was another big floss brand, but I can't remember what it was. Is that one gone or is this a regional monopoly? What floss brands are stocked at your local craft stores?
