I am in the process of organizing all my embroidery floss. I really like to see how beautiful it looks neatly stored in these plastic floss boxes. I have a small bunch of skeins still left to wind up on their bobbins.
I was looking at the order of colors on my color wheel and I decided to arrange my floss in that order. Such a nice collection! It looks like I have a lot of floss and a good color selection doesn't it? Well...
..during my organizing, I came across this list that I picked up from the fabric store quite a long time ago.
It lists all the floss color numbers that DMC offers. There is even a check list to mark off the colors you have. Imagine my surprise when I checked off all of my floss and realized that I have 89 different colors - wow! But that is out of a possible 454!!! I have only tried about 20% of their colors.
I find I tend to buy the same colors over and over. I need to branch out - I would love to collect the whole list of colors. I wonder about any of you? Do you keep track of your floss colors and does anyone have a whole color collection?
