I'm dancing again...... I have another finish.
Saterday my new threads where brought by the postman, so this weekend I stitched and stitched... and so was my cow-baby from Ellen Maurer-Stroh finished.
It love it, the cute little cow-baby.

Soon I hope to start a new baby from EMS, but with a winter theme this time, I think it wil be the christmas Cat with a poinsettia in his hand.
But need to think it through first..

I'm now busy to finish the Fall from the four seasons SAL, it's almost finished. I'm stitching it for a long time now, and I get tired of it, so need to stitch, stich stitch....

I have found a new start te make (after Fall Sal is done).
Here is it, I hope to start it this week..

Normal I order the threads that I need for a piece i'm stitchig. The colors that you need a lot for diffent pieces I have, and for every new piece I just need a few new threads. For a few months now I'm ordering more threads, so I can aggregate al DMC colors.
A few months back I order two large boxes, and one of them is full now.

So now saving for the second box

Years back I bought a DMC book with al the numbering system in it.
On the back you can find al the DMC thread numbers, when I buy a color I strip it of.
Here you can see how many I have at the moment.

From 150 to 900 I have all the colors... no that not true I miss a few, but there are not in stock, so hope to got them soon. When I start a new piece I notice I need to buy a lot less colors then before. It's so ideal

I off to vacuuming with Noah

Thanks all for visiting my blog, and leavind a comment, I love readig them.

Nice stitching! Sometimes it's fun to just play with your floss, isn't it?

Wendy zei

ehm, ik denk dat je bedoeld "stripe it off " want strip it off betekend eraf trekken .

die dozen heb ik ook, erg handig !
alleen heb ik de kaartjes omhoog staan, dan zie ik het nummer meteen, scheelt een stuk met zoeken als je zoals ik 3 dozen hebt .

Congrats on finishing the Cow baby. So cute!
Not much to do on Leaf Fall, you probably finish it by now. I had seen the whole serie on CSL and it's all beautiful.

You could order your threads with JJ's collectibles: they are going to have a sale very soon ( these days) That's what I did to get all the DMC's threads .
