DMC floss move complete!!


Remember not long ago I posted that I was going to be using the "Jammer method" of storing my floss. Well I'm happy to announce that I have all the floss transferred to their new home! :). I had to rewind about 95% of the floss #s. I was just wanting to get it finished as I didn't want to have to go thru so many boxes to find the color I was looking for. I just need to re wrap the metallic and some of the rayon colors that I have.

So now I can focus more on S.T.I.T.C.H.I.N.G. since I will know where all my floss are.. he he

For those that would like to know what a Jammer is. Its real job is to hold matchbox cars.. but it had other intentions.

I purchased it at WalMart, in the toy dept. I actually just asked the clerk if she had anything that I could purchase to store matchbox cars in. It was no where near the matchbox cars (so I'm happy I asked). It only cost me $4.88. But here is the kicker.. I had to purchase (which I'm glad I did) the DMC floss bobbins. I was using the cardboard bobbins and I just was not having the greatest luck with them in the end. They would bend and just look awful.



And like I said in a previous post, I also purchased 2 sets of DMC Floss # stickers. So there is a sticker on the front, and the back of the bobbins.

So now I have all these metal rings that came with the DMC floss bobbins... anyone like them!?! I'm not sure the number of them that I have.. but I know I have at least 5 or so.

I have a Jammer box that I was considering doing the same thing. My only problem is that I have 11 floss boxes filled with DMC on cardboard bobbins. Thanks for sharing which bobbins to use.

I use a Jammer box too ... love it! And if you seriously are looking for a home for the rings? I'll take them off your hands!
