This week for the P52 Photo Challenge, the theme is hobbies. One of the hobbies I have is needlework (cross-stitching and embroidery) which I have been doing now for over 30 years.
To keep the embroidery floss organized, I wrap it around paper holders that are available at craft stores. In this way, the floss doesn't get tangled and it is together in one spot.
When I first starting using embroidery floss it was for cross-stitching. I followed patterns which noted which DMC floss numbers I needed to do the pattern. So, I organized my embroidery floss box by DMC number. In that way, when I was ready to do another project I could check the box and see if I already had the floss.
Now, I rarely do cross-stitching. Rather, I do embroidery patterns in which the focus is more on the color rather than the DMC number.
Olivia suggested that I should re-do the box by sorting the floss by colors rather than number. Perhaps that will be a project one day during the winter when it is too cold to go outside.
