cross stitch stash buster
by Anne Mende / Pumora Follow

I have the habit to keep left over strands of split up embroidery floss in my storage box. This pile became a little mess and I wanted  to do something with it before it became too tangled to use the embroidery floss.

So this is what I made out of it - a chaotic mess of random cross stitches out of a chaotic mess of entangled embroidery floss.

When you take some steps back from the hoop the colors blend in and you can see streams of cold colors (the blue hues) and warm colors (the red hues) floating around each other like with the yin-yang symbol.

    This is really pretty! I have bits of embroidery thread shoved into desk drawers and project bags. I may have to pull it all out and make something with it.
