Colours

My friend, June, has been wanting to know how I store my floss for a while now. I'm sorry it took me so long to post the photos. So, this is for you, June.
I store my DMC floss in a two tier craft box. Lucky for me, it's big enough to fit my entire set of DMC in.
As you can see here, I had the floss wound on plastic bobbins. So much easier for storage.
I've been building up my collection of HDF Solids. My micro bobbins are stored in a clear Ferrero Rocher box.
Of course, my box is now overflowing.
What better excuse could one ask for to buy more chocolates? I used to joke with Mikey that silks are yummier than chocolates. Don't you agree with me?
I've also been asked to show my scissors collection. Now, my collection isn't as extensive as some stitchers I see out there but until I put them all on display like this, I never realize I've already accumulated this many scissors. LOL!
One last thing, I received this gorgeous scarf from Radha a few weeks back. I've neglected to show it off until now. Radha knows my favourite colour is blue so she made me one in a brilliant shade of blue. Thank you so much again, Radha. I love it!
That's it for now. I'll show more piccies of my Romantique Sampler next time. I'm working on the next two parts at the moment.
Happy Stitching!

Your threads look so nice in those boxes. Lovely colors. And you really have many nice scissors :)

I outgrew my Ferrero Rocher chocolate boxes too and I was a little disappointed that I couldn't remove the chocolate name sticker from the top - it seems to be embedded in the plastic! Scrummy colours in your box and what a great scissor collection too!

I love your dmc box. Wish I could get one of them here. Your HDF thread collection looks great. Fantastic scarf colour!

You and I store DMC in a similar manner!! And I love the box you store your HDF in...and yes, it's a great excuse to get another box! LOL What a lovely gift from your friend, it's a beautiful shade of blue! *Hugs*

Love your storage solutions! What brand is the craft case for your floss? I've never seen anything like that here in the US.

Thanks so much for sharing this with me, Veronica! Only now I've got to read about your floss storage. My bad. Time to tidy up mine. I may also start to stock up on silk flosses.
