After my huge thread haul a few weeks ago, I’ve been meaning to go though all the threads I picked up and make sure I had one of each color in my box.
I did a quick inventory of all the threads in my stash…
And then I had to reorganize the colors in my thread box because I’m super anal about how things are organized. But as I was organizing the colors using ROY G. BIV, I ran into the problem of where the browns, grays, whites and black go… I also had issues with the different tints and hues that sort of belong in two different places.
I did research, y’all… Like real research. What the heck is wrong with me?!
I looked into using the DMC color card to try and sort things out but it didn’t have all the colors listed.
After a lot of searching, I found a list that was seemed to be a pretty comprehensive list of DMC threads organized into their color families.
I decided to go with that list… It took a bit of time to make sure everything was accounted for and on the correct place but it’s so nice to have a workable system in place!
