Thread Heaven

Nope, not a review of the product. It's the place I'm in right now. Because I finally went through the Jammer box I have my "to be filed" floss that is wound on, and organized it. One side for the regular DMC and Anchor, the other side for the silks and over-dyeds. And you would not believe how much Gentle Art floss I found. I had started to wonder because, a few years ago, I bought every color of Weeks and GAST threads (ah, those glorious days before car payments), and I added to it over the years, so where did it go? Apparently, all into that Jammer box. At least it's all together now, and the new Jammer boxes I ordered are at my mom's, waiting to be picked up. I know, the next logical step would have been to put it in the box with the rest of the bobbins, but I'm redoing that box, too, so I just took comfort in organizing it halfway. All my Crescent Colours are wound and are in the box together--I realized I have an astonishing amount of English Ivy, Brandied Pears, Country Road, and Brown Sugar. The Ivy and Pears are from last year's LHN series, but I don't know about the other two.

When I got that done, plus the laundry and grocery shopping, and putting away the last few pesky Christmas decorations, I decided to reward myself. I finished Fresh Fallen Snow Saturday night, and had the threads ready for JBW Love and Joy, so worked on that. Left-brain somehow happened on the "Life is not worth Living" feature on FX, so I watched that with him. It was "Armageddon", one of my favorite movies due to the presence of Ben Affleck, and the hopeful message, then "2012", which I will NEVER watch again, too hokey and I, honestly, don't like movies where the vast majority of people die and no good comes of it. After that was "Taken," with Liam Neeson, which was a great movie about a horrible topic. Much better than 2012. I actually managed to finish the ornament--yeah me--and will get pictures tonight.

Thank you all for your suggestion about how to deal with the magazines. There are several that I think will really work for me and I appreciate the help.

It's always fun to see all of those beautiful colors of thread all together and organized! Sounds like you had a very nice weekend!

what is a jammer box? Maybe I missed the explanation. And where do you buy them from?

Sounds like you had a great time organizing :o) Good for you!

I loved the movie Taken but was put off by 2012 too.

I do my thing and you do yours. I am not in this world to live up to your expectations, and you are not in this world to live up to mine. You are you and I am I, and if by chance we find each other, then it is beautiful. If not, it can’t be helped--Frederick Perls
