I try to be organised as much as I can but during the past few months of busyness I seemed to be in quite a flap with bits and pieces in all areas of the house. My stitching chair has a set of drawers along side and they were scattered with embrodiery threads from lots of different projects.
So over the break I decided to get everything in order so I knew which threads I needed to replace. It makes it much easier to find a number when they are filed away in numeric order and not in a pile like this !
I found that I had lots of spares of some colours which I obviously use a lot - some of them had up to 4 cards.
But now they are all neatly filed away in boxes. I have also filled out the DMC Checklist of the threads I need (I have highlighted them) and I keep this chart in my purse so that I can easily check what I need when I am out shopping. Do you use the Checklist? You can DOWNLOAD it from HERE if you would like to use one too?
