Full Set Of DMC

Thanks to ebay I have finally managed to get a full set of DMC embroidery floss. I have at least one skein of each color. My floss is arranged by number, with that bunch of skeins waiting to be put on bobbins. YAY!


I have also managed to give my sister-in-law Stephanie almost a complete set of DMC floss for her stitching. She is about 15 to 20 skeins short. Hopefully I can complete her set in the next couple of months.

I have one more order from ebay coming in and this will be 201 colors of Anchor embroidery floss. I figure that will give me a decent start to that brand of floss and make it possible for me to stitch the designs that I like which are charted for Anchor. I'm not very good at conversions so I figure having some Anchor floss won't hurt.

Because I won an auction I wasn't expecting to win, we ended up with a bunch of duplicates as well, which replaced my backup floss which I have packaged up to send to a friend of mine.

So now I have plenty of floss, lets see if I can actually start stitching again to use the floss. LOL

  1. Feels good to have them all doesn't it? Lets you know you can stitch a design as soon as you get in the mood instead of waiting to buy the right colors!

  9. Isn't the collecting a big part of the fun? Your boxes look very tidy. When I first started stitching, twenty some-odd years ago, the friend who taught me would give me a big range of colors for birthday and Christmas presents. That got a big jump on my collection - and I've tried to keep it complete ever since.
