in thread heaven....

or hell depending on how you look at it...

Last week sometime Dani posted about how she loves to organize including her stash... she happened to post about putting away her threads after her projects... well that got me thinking, and I even commented on her blog that I could use some help!

My threads are all over the place as of late. I've been super lazy in putting them away, and it got to the point where it was much easier to go shopping for a new skein of thread when kitting together a project than to actually go looking for the missing threads...

Soooo.... I thought it was time to get organized! Or I should say continue to get organized, as I started to do this in the summer with all my "extra" threads, putting them into floss bags and then into boxes from Micheals, so it would be easier to find if I ran out of a colour etc. I sweet talked my hubby into helping and we got started! I gathered all my thread from all over the house - with the exception of the ones I happen to be using at the moment and here is what we came up with...

The before pile...



And the after...



I ran out of baggies, so we stopped doing those, but did organize the left over thread into piles according to number... and in the mesh bag in front of the boxes are all my extra black (310), blanc, b5200 and ecru threads...

Here is what we sorted and found missing from my jammer boxes, where I keep my threads on bobbins..

Hubby is helping me wind these onto their bobbins while I stitch for the rest of the evening! Isn't he a keeper!?! I think so and I think I'm very lucky with him too!

A million thanks to him for all his help and patience!

Edited to add: here is a picture of all the floss "bobbinated" now to just "file" them away tomorrow in their rightful places...

Well done, I am impressed - with both of you. You have to be really patient to organise it all like that.

Isn't it wonderful to have them organized? I needed 3 days when I did it.
