The next two photos show how I store my threads and my wee box that is always beside me ! I wind my threads round clothes pegs. I seen this idea on Pinterest and it works really well for me, I just write the code number at the top end and can put the end if the thread in the end to hold it in place. I also found that this does not give me the kink in the thread that I find when I put it on bobbins. I really don’t like working with thread that has kinks.
My purple box once housed a necklace that I got for my birthday, but it is the perfect size for all my bits. You can see the usual, my tin for thread ends, needle case etc. There is a pencil missing from picture though. The plasters are not for if I stab myself but for the pad of my finger that I hold my needle with, if I’m doing a lot of stitching I sometimes need a wee extra bit if cushioning and this seems to work 🙂
Now the next picture is one of my favourites purely because I have tried many ways of storing my kits that I am working on. This is how I will do it from now on. Wee thin pockets 30p from supermarket holds working copy of pattern that I can cross off as I go plus Aida if it fits and a pencil case (50p) with threads from stash that are needed. Everything all contained and easy to grab 🙂
