This is where I log craft projects, ideas, products, materials and sources including links. I'll also document sources of inspiration. I love crafts, including knitting, quilting, scrapbooking, stained glass crafting and others. My specialties were knitted baby caps and glycerin soaps I call "Gemsoaps." Now, I'm into embroidery and beading.

Good DMC Embroidery Floss Resources

I am about to embarq on a new cross-stitch project from the Cross-Stitcher's Club. I thought this would be beautiful on royal blue Aida cloth, so I stopped by Michael's in Mooresville, NC, on the way home from Charlotte. That particular Michael's has more cross-stitch fabric in stock than any other retail store I currently know of. They didn't have royal blue, but they did have a 15" x 18" piece of navy blue on clearance for $2.49!

I divided the stitch count by 14 (14-count Aida cloth) and determined that the finished piece will be 5.2" x 7". That ought to do it!

I just checked to see which colors of floss I already have on hand, and there were only three. Since I'm changing the background color, I think I'll change up the floss colors to what I have on hand. To help with that, I looked on line for a chart of color names and color descriptions for DMC floss. Now, I'm ready to go back through my thread boxes and see what I can find!
