I had a brainstorm while I was in Spain, and decided I would transfer ALL my DMC threads from the plastic bags I keep them in at the moment, to plastic bobbins. I really shouldn't think at all, it just gets me into bother. I bought a storage box and some bobbins from eBay - cos I'm not going to do it all in one go obviously - and when the bobbins arrived I started winding thread. I wound 200 threads over two days! And still got 37 drawers of threads to go. What's worse of course is the fact that I don't just have ONE skein of each colour. Oh no, that would be far too easy. For example, I have 10 skeins of black, 14 skeins of blanc, 4 of B5200, 8 of 3799. Most colours have at least 2 skeins, if not more. Mostly more. I'm going to end up with a huge pile of threads boxes at this rate. I've bought another two storage boxes but I need more bobbins...LOTS MORE BOBBINS!
