Loaded and sorted and there is still a bit of room…..fancy that!
There are 390 spools of embroidery thread on those racks; with a capacity of 480!! One of those spools is bobbin thread, so really I only have 389 different thread choices……Boy do I feel blessed! I did have to download a color wheel to get started placing the thread on the wall racks, and I am sure I will have to move a spool from hear to there at some point. Overall, I am pleased. The big spools by Floriani have to sit at the end of a row, so their colors are a bit out of line with the others. Oh well, what are you to do about that? Tough problem!
My ironing station will most likely be placed back under the thread racks. It is on wheels so is very conducive to moving around as the need presents itself, and it is not so wide that I can’t reach over it to reach the thread.
In order to get all 4 thread racks side by side, my hubby had to take down a cabinet and move it over by the window. It seems to be a good place. I used it for notions and the like, and when I emptied it, I wondered what and why I was keeping some things in it for! A little sorting and purging (GASP) is in order! Some of the items definitely belong in the desk drawers. I think I need to keep that in mind as I rearrange the items back onto the shelves. I had him place it higher as I have another little shelf that will be hung just underneath that will give me some little drawers too. So, I will try to remember not to put anything too high on the shelf!
Last new years, I was sorting and arranging, hubby was hanging shelves and I was organizing scraps. It seems like I am destined to do that every year! The rest of the room is in utter chaos as I have projects and hammers and other tools still lying about. My friend Nancy offered to come over and help organize, and I may take her up on that offer after I get a little more “purging” done. I am the “keeper” of the Quilt Guild 2nd Time Around “stuff”, so I always have new items coming into my space that have to be sorted, pressed, folded and made ready for sale. Some times I just leave it sit in a basket/box/bin for a while because I am busy with my own projects, and my own “scraps”. Next week at our quilt bee we will be identifying our UFO’s and projects we want to work on this new year. It helps I think, to start off on a tidier slate…..but it may take me the rest of the month to get it together!
