Last week, I showed my next hand stitching project--a cross stitch picture based on the Tree of Life stained glass window by Frank Lloyd Wright.
Confession: I did not get much slow stitching done this past week. I organized my thread and then spent a few days looking for my embroidery hoop so I could do some stitching...I finally found the hoop today and started stitching! My aunt used to do petit point and she always organized her threads this way. I used a hole punch and made 6 holes along the side of the cardboard. I separated the threads by colour and labelled the symbols and colour names by each hole. Is this the way other people do this? Many years ago when my go-to stitching project was cross stitch, I just copied my aunt's method and have never considered other ways to organize the threads.
