Judy Martin does a lot of stitching...hand stitching.
She is currently marking a years time in thread and fabric.
Her entry for today, the 8th, shows the work....and her saying "that's 365 skeins of thread" really hit me.
I have been watching her work for years now. I know she has been doing this.
But 365 skeins.....Well...
DMC makes 454 solid colors.
This picture off ebay shows 110 skeins.
This one is also off ebay, Anchor floss, 260 skeins.
Still not a years worth.
I guess I would have to go to the store, and start at one end of the floss bin...I know I couldn't hold them all in my hand, I would need a basket. And if I lost count? I think I would need to plan it out a bit before hand, otherwise I would end up making a lot of noise in the store....
But imagine 365 colors in your basket!!!
