After kitting up about 10 projects over the last couple of days, I decided I didn’t like the way my overdyed floss was organized. I had it all in alphabetical order on rings but by brand so if I needed something that started with a “B” in Weeks Dyeworks, I’d have to get the Weeks “B” ring down, then if I needed something that started with “B” in Gentle Arts, I’d have to get that ring down. That also meant keeping three brands of floss all in order.
Last night, I thought . . I’ll mix all the brands and put them in alphabetical order so if I need a “B” floss, no matter which brand I need, I’ll grab the “B” ring and then if there’s another “B” needed from one of the other brands, I can get it at the same time.
There was a tub of floss where I’d been dumping what came in and what I finished using for other projects, thinking “soon I’ll put those on the rings” but I never did.
This morning I took all the floss that was in that tub, spread it out on the bed and got it all in semi-alphabetical order. The “A” floss is in a pile, the “B” floss is in a pile, but not in alphabetical order in each pile.
Then I grabbed all the rings and started combining them.
I got mid-way through the C’s and I’m thinking . . this may not be such a great idea. It’s going to take me forever and if I have all the charts kitted that I need til next year, I don’t have to deal with the floss much between now and then so . . why am I wasting my time doing this?
I think I’m going to leave the rest of the floss as it is, but take all the floss that was in the tub and put it alphabetically with the rest of it’s brand and forget I ever had this crazy idea.
