Threads threads threads

I sat down to work on the birthday present some more yesterday and got stuck! I was missing two colors! So it had to wait until I could go to the store today. So instead I decided to finally sit and organize all my floss. Awhile ago I started picking up a pack or two here and there of plastic bobbins, and DMC number stickers. When I would bring home a new color floss I would put it on the new plastic bobbin with matching number sticker, but I never got around to fixing all my old ones so they would look pretty. (I can't stand the sight of them all with bent cardboard and messy thread everywhere!) I ended up filling three boxes!!!

Also we went driving around yesterday with Dad. He wanted to look at these Amish wood cabins. They have a model sitting on the side of the road south of us. He wants to build one back in our woods. So we went and look and he got ideas. Wish I had taken a couple pictures to show you how cute these little things are. (People use them for hunting cabins.) It even had a little porch. But after that we stopped at a few junk/antique shops. And I found these cute teddy bears, they have a bracelet wrapped around the neck in pretty purple, clear, & silver beads and a pendent thats a heart that says mom. Hopefully my mom doesn't read this post. :) One is for her Mother's Day present and the other is for John's Mom. We also bought John's mom a really pretty necklace. But I still need to figure something else out for my mom.

After we got home and I finished with all my threads. (my arm hurts!) I decided to work on the indecent tiger. (That's what i'm calling it now) I'm also missing a couple colors for him. So another reason to go to the store today.

Well thanks for listing to me go on and on. Hope your enjoying your day. Thanks for stopping by.

I started using the plastic ones too-- except the DMC numbers didn't want to stay on for me. So I started picking up the cardboard ones again-- but these are thick like the plastic ones. I like them more now. :)

Nice job on getting your bobbins switched over. I have mine on cardboard ones and will only switch over when I use up the floss. I've also found that the stickers will fall off after a period of time, so I use a fine point sharpie marker to write the number on.
