Put'n on the Rit z

A few years back an old friend of mine gave me a seven or eight boxes (25 /box) of DMC which she picked up at a garage sale for a coupla bucks. Now the colours were those less desirable to the average stitcher but let me show ya what can happen when I have a ton of things to do and I get distracted.......
 and I still have a ton of things on the list for today but you know what?  Yep, your right, I will take time to play for a bit. For now I am only using Dark Navy and mixing it with each of the different colours of floss from that bag and then some.
 all in all, I ended up with 61 rather interesting shades and handed off about 9 last night to some interested onlookers.
The first batch was fun and definitely a learning tool, so with what I learned and what ever will be and maybe even a redo for some of the ones that didn’t quite do what I thought they would I’m off to finish off a few little goodies for the weekend and put a
few scenes to a pot of hot dye.

 Hummmm, I wonder how distracted I could get this weekend????? 

Naw, not this weekend!   lol

I am sure we will be 

but you just never know.


  1. Brilliant! Looks like fun, actually.

  2. That looks like fun. I'd end up with a tangled mess though. Can't wait to see the next batch!

  3. I love the reds and blues the best! They look great!

    Happy Stitching this weekend!

  4. Wow, gorgeous colors! What fun!

  5. Wow, that's a lot of floss! Looks like you had a lot of fun with it too! Pretty colours!

  6. That is a TON of floss and looks like fun! How were your fingers afterwards?? LOL
