What sort of cotton do you use to embroider with? Do you choose by brand, or colour, or by what the shop you're in actually stocks? Do you store your cottons in a box, all wound onto spools with their numbers written on ...or do you have a tangled cluster in the bottom of your sewing box?
These are the questions I was pondering as I wound some new threads onto their little cardboard spools this afternoon....and don't say it....I know what you're thinking LOL. I'm a little bit anal about my cottons :)
Apart from a few lonely skeins of Anchor and Semco left over from my teenage years, I'm a DMC girl. They have the most colours, the quality is wonderful, and DMC is the most widely used brand in patterns. Speaking of which, if you're after some cross-stitch/embroidery/ crochet patterns, check out http://www.dmc-usa.com/ ...lots of free goodies that you can download right now!
So...what's YOUR cotton?
