Storage With Style


I’m working on a project that requires 16 colors of embroidery floss. I decided to start with all new skeins to make sure I wouldn’t run out, so I was tickled pink to find a new way to store the leftovers once I’d finished with them. (Thank you, Pinterest! β™₯) I think they look extra pretty in this bowl Greg made, don’t you?Β This concept also fits a new decorating strategy I adopted when we decided to downsize to a smaller home. Instead of putting up decorations AND finding places to store things, why not use storage solutions that decorate?

  1. This is the first time I’ve ever bought brand new floss because I have such a big stash from Grandma Leona and other crafty family members! When I get a chance, I’m going to clothespin wrap all of those skeins, too, and store them in the big bowl my mom made (the one with the cookie cutters above) . . . probably on the coffee table. πŸ™‚

  4. Brilliant idea! I use two different colors of embroidery floss on every quilt I make and I have rebought the same thread more than once because I didn’t see I alrady owned it. I love this idea! Thanks for sharing!
