Pearl Cotton storage

I have been following Pat Sloan's blog regarding 'Storage and Organizing Tips' presented through Quilting Gallery- Michele Foster has worked very hard in keeping all of us Quilting enthusiasts involved around the globe, check out the webpage here http://quiltinggallery.com/2012/02/28/thread-storage-studio-organizatio/

So in response to all this 'organizing' I made some
adjustments to my own way of storage and
keeping my work area usable.
One way was to put my Pearle Cotton Floss
into a thread storage container-

I found that the empty spools were
very useful, they also allow for the
tail end of the floss to be tucked into
the slit at the bottom of the spool.

Feel free to share and tell me about your ideas and your storage/organization hints.

Until then, Sew away.

not enough energy to sew...

I am recovering from a surgical procedure.  I want to thank my husband, my sister, and the many friends who have come to my rescue...i.e. providing delicious meals, sending me cards, following up with phone calls, stop in and visit time, offers to take me for a ride, and many other kind thoughts and prayers on my healing behalf.
  I just wanted to express my gratitude to all my children the thankfulness for their love and concern, and to let them know (since they are not living near me) that I am truly doing well.
I am grateful to all...and will get this posting back in order soon, with hopefully some new and exciting projects that are on my 'to finish list'.
