When I was putting together my 2014 goals list, I got this crazy idea in my head that I should own all 454 DMC thread colors. I found it really interesting to inventory what I had. Apparently I kept buying a lot of the same colors over and over, there were a lot I had 5 or 6 bobbins of.
I made a list of what I needed and slowly started acquiring them as I was doing my normal craft shopping. Apparently I had an aversion to darker greens and browns, there were a lot of those I needed. But I was surprised I was missing a lot of pinks too. When Joann’s had their 3/$.99 sale combined with the 10% off a purchase coupon I took the plunge and picked up the rest I needed.
I finally got them all wound and sorted. For now I’m keeping them in color number order but I might eventually sort them by color. I had all my multiples in these boxes too but I made the executive decision to only include one of each color. Then I will keep all my extras separate. I am probably more excited about this than I should be.
Do you have any ridiculous crafting related goals?
