Organized? Maybe

threaddrawersOn occasion I like to look organized. This doesn’t happen often, so I’d like to share this rare moment with you. Here you see my hand dyed pearl cotton threads neatly stored in drawers. They are sorted by size (3, 5, 8, 12) and colorway. Organized, right?

  1. I keep my embroidery threads in small compartment boxes with each color wrapped on a spool. The extra skeins go in non compartment boxes. My pearl cottons are separated by color but not by size.
