Do you remember a blog I did quite awhile ago, where I proudly showed off my jars of floss and threads? This, for a long time, was the way I stored these items. Each time I started a new piece I would empty a jar, paw through it and dig out the colors/hues/tones that I wanted to use - then run off to the embroidery shop for more floss.
As I inch my way back into the play of punchneedle I decided that there was probably a better way, perhaps a more 'adult' 'organized' approach. With this in mind I went shopping and found this inexpensive rolling set of drawers. I liked it because the drawers were of a good size but flat rather than deep - much easier to see.
So the 'fun' began as I dumped, sorted, labeled baggies and put skein after skein into its carefully prepped new home. Of course organization is always preceded by disorganization and I certainly accomplished that.
At this point I have bag after bag, drawer after drawer all ready for my perusal. As a design is developed I can see at a glance what I have on hand and know what more I will need.
Will it be as much fun as dumping the floss all over the table and going through it - probably not - but certainly I feel quite righteous in my organization! *smile*
