I have been stitching

I stitched some more on Night Before Christmas, Thursday night. I will be putting this away for a couple of weeks. This week is ornament week for me.
Thursday I also watched TV while stitching:
General Hospital
Supernatural - 2/5
The Beast 1/29
Bones
Grey's Anatomy
Private Practice

I have also been listening to Breaking Dawn by Stephenie Meyer.

Today I went to Michael's to pick up more plastic bobbins and then to Walmart for Jammers boxes. I bought 6 packages of bobbins and 3 Jammers. That will keep me busy for a couple of weeks. I am almost doen winding all of the 5oo DMS on bobbins and then will put them in numerical order. These are all extra extra floss that I have and will fill a few Jammer boxes. But will be so much easier to find a color when I run out of my regular Jammer box that I use for all the WIPs and UFOs. That Jammer box has 1 of each DMC color in it and has the whole set. I still need to buy 3 clear bins for fabric. 1 for aida- I only use for ornaments and certain designs. I won't buy more when that is all gone. 1 bin for 28 ct and 1 bin for 32 ct. My beads and kreiniks are already organized and I should be ok with the overdyed flosses.

I don't envy you winding all those bobbins, but it really will feel good when you get it all organized -- good on you!

All that floss winding is sure gonna take time. Good luck with that. I have all my skeins and I have a set here and a set at home. I like to be able to find my threads right away when I want to stitch something.
Nice progress on the The Night Before

Good luck to you on winding. I just stuff mine all in a zip lock bag and when that is full, use another. Then when I have a project I have to dig out all the bags, pull out all the threads and find what I want.
Still it is easier than winding, I think! LOL
