New Floss Organizer System!

For Christmas, one of the nice things I got (they were all nice!) was a new embroidery floss organizer system. The first picture shows my old way--envelopes. The second picture shows the new way--bobbins. Since I have collected all the colors over the last 20+ years, it is going to take me awhile to transfer all those skeins of floss to the new systems. As of today, I have 1 1/2 boxes out of 3 done! I'm making progress! I think my dear hubby gets tired of hearing the little bobbin winder squeaking it's way around, but so far he has yet to say anything!!! What a patient man!

Sunday afternoon we put the Thimbleberries BOM on the quilt frame--it uses up every spare inch of the frame and we will be awhile quilting this one--but it's good to be working on it!

I hope you had a good Christmas--we had a nice quiet one --talked to both of our girls, which is always so nice and ate a nice dinner--although we did have one problem--me! I somehow didn't turn on the oven for the ham and we couldn't figure out why it wasn't baking! Finally Maynard figured it out--I thought I had lowered the temperature after baking the apple dumplings, but instead I had turned it off!! Oh dear! It finally cooked and we ate an hour late--good thing only the 2 of us!!!

Let quilting help you make someone smile!

What a nice organizer, much easier to see the colors. I am glad you had a wonderful Christmas.

I have also used this method for organizing my floss, however, it doesn't hold much, and sometimes if you take out one skein the rest pop out too. Still looking for a better solution!!
