Come and share today! Still time to link up!
On this cold snowy morning in North Carolina, it is time for the third weekend "It's A Saturday Sharing Day" where we will share it all!
I figure most everyone is settling down for a relaxing weekend come Saturday morning so I hope that you will take the time to create a blog post talking about things you have accomplished for the past week in your sewing rooms, share one of your needlework projects, or share your pets.. a good read you think we all might like.. Let us take a sneek peek in to your kitchen and see what is on the stove for the weekend..
Today I would like to share with you a new storage system for my thread that I found at Bed Bath and Beyond a week or so ago. I have been carrying around a ball of the Pearl Cotton thread that I sell on my website so I could find an easier way to store the balls that I use at my stitching station so the ends did not get entangled with each other. This is how I was currently storing it... look familiar??
Hubby and I took off to Raleigh a week or so ago so I grabbed my coupons and made it a point to go by Bed Bath and Beyond. I actually had it in my mind to hopefully find those old timey spice racks... the white plastic ones we all used to use in the 70's. They were only about as deep as a bottle of spice and had 3 or 4 shelves to hold spices. I thought the balls would fit perfectly on the shelves but I found something far more superior. What I found actually keeps the thread away from dust! There is a small hole in the cup and then tiny holes in the lid, perfectly sized for this thread, that when you line them both up with each other, the thread comes right out to you. I will never have to remove the cup from the backboard or even take the lid off to cut a length to use. Just pull my desired length out and whack and I am ready to thread my needle! Just take a look!
I was so over the moon excited with my find! I only purchased 2 that day just to be sure they would work on my doors and now I need to go buy 4 more! There will be 3 on each door! Now my stitching closet is a lot more user friendly!
And for those of you who have been guessing as to what I was going to use these spice racks for at this post on the blog.... I have chosen a winner from the replies... Charlene S. of Geema's Wonderings said..
