New Embroidery Floss Storage

A few weeks ago when I was visiting my daughter, we went to a few estate sales.  One of the things I found was a small drawer unit. It was full of nuts and bolts, etc., all of which I gave to Mr. M.

There are 60 drawers, and I thought it might work well for storing all of my embroidery floss.

It is perfect! 

Plenty of room for all the floss wrapped around those little cardboard holders.

Plus enough room for the floss that I haven't put around the holders and any extra skeins.  There was even a drawer for the extra cardboard holders.

On another note, the birds are coming back.  This morning we had an indigo bunting join the group.  They are such a beautiful blue.

I am so happy that Spring has arrived!  We've planted seed potatoes and onion sets, as well as carrots and lettuce.  Hope to get the tomato, pepper, and artichoke seedlings set out this weekend.  Then the rest in a week or so.

I'm linking up with Sew Darn Crafty Linky Party
