8 bobbin boxes

are now empty. I organized the rest of the boxes last night, again putting one of each color (that I have) in the big Jammer, and consolidating the extras. It feels splendid, and now I have a place to put the floss that still needs to be wound, if I ever get around to that.

I am going to take one of the other Jammers and put all my silks on one side and the smaller manufacturers' floss on the other--I don't know if I'll ever use their stuff, but it sure is pretty to look at, especially the Dye Shop flosses. Does anyone else remember them? I bought a lot of their stuff when I was building up stash, I've used a few colors because it's just so pretty. I think the third box is going for my Anchor flosses, since I prefer to keep those separate from the DMC. That alone takes care of two bobbin boxes and a bag stuffed in one of those large paper boxes from Michaels. Woo hoo. I think the girl might be getting organized in spite of her own best efforts.

I am still plugging away at Hearts of America. The Jammer boxes have taken away somewhat from my stitching time, but I like the progress that I'm making. It's not an easy design to stitch; I have been frogging like crazy, but it's worth it. Because I didn't choose a big enough piece of fabric, though, I have small margins, so I decided that this one is going to be a wall hanging that will either hang with my patriotic sheep stitching (it has a little sheep button and a flag to qualify for this honor!), when that gets put up in the sewing room, or it'll come out seasonally.

So that's all from here. They are calling for snow this afternoon, not much, around an inch, but any snow drives people around here into near-riot status. I filled up the gas tank, but only because I don't like pumping gas in the snow. Other than that, no biggie, I can drive in it.

Feels good to get organized, doesn't it!

So how many Jammer boxes do you have compared to how many bobbin boxes you had?

Look at you still getting yourself organized! Wanna come here when you're done with yours? Mines all in a mess again!

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
