This is Sooooo Your Fault! (continued)
As the squirrels outside are racing around stashing their nuts, I'm inside my house, too wired to sit calmly and stitch. Instead, I'm on an ORGANIZATION MISSION and I've decided to rearrange more of my threads. Hey, why not tackle the metallic thread mess next?
I have a lot of Rainbow Gallery metallics that I use constantly in my designs. They are on loose binder rings, which are convenient, but when they're all tangled up in a drawer they're not fun to wrestle with and I curse a lot when I pull them out of their plastic drawers. Sooooo, I decided to untangle them and hang them up instead. Brilliant! (Oooohh...they're really pretty to look at, aren't they?)
And here's what they're hanging on:
I took a few of the 2'x6' grid panels I have (the ones I assembled for my booths at the shows I used to attend) and set them up in my tiny office. I spent the rest of the afternoon happily rearranging threads on my new thread display. I'm now one happy (and well organized) designer. Woo Hoo!
[ASIDE TO CONI J.: I place the blame for my manic organizational frenzy squarely on your shoulders, you stitchy diva, you.... You and your matching wood hangers for your canvases...and your baskets of seasonal projects.... and all your twirly thread holders. IT'S. ALL. YOUR. FAULT... totally. I mean it. ahem....]
As for me, I'm off to the store to get more metal rings to organize more of my threads. Hey, who knew this thread organizing could be soooo addicting!
