organizing my threads.


I love having a bunch of pretty embroidery floss around to stitch with,
but it can turn into such a tangled mess!
I saw this idea on Pinterest & knew I had to give it a try. ;)

So I spent a couple of hours on a Saturday doing this...

{all of my floss + miniature clothespins}
{I labeled each clothespin with the floss number
in case I need more of the same color.}
{and, done!}

My threads don't get tangled,
and they look so pretty in a mason jar!

Oh, that would look so pretty displayed in a jar. I love when things are functional and and pretty all at once.:)
