Good morning Buttoneers! It seems like a while since we had a ‘Workspace Wednesday’ because last week’s became my Daffodil brooch! This week I am having a bit of a sort out and organising my craft supplies a bit more so they are easier to use.
One of my pet hates and especially as I use them so much, are my embroidery threads getting tangled and knotted. So, a few years ago, I had a peruse of Pinterest and found a great idea. Winding my threads around pegs to keep them tidy and unwound from their skeins, where they inevitably get knotted and I get stressed.
So in moments of time where I have a minute, I will sit and wind the embroidery thread around the pegs, keeping the colours together for each different peg (obviously – I am a bit of an organisation freak when I get going)
It is actually very therapeutic and relaxing, which gives me a little bit of downtime and makes me have a bit of a break when I am working in the studio.
Not to mention that they look super fun and colourful at the same time as being so much easier to grab a colour when I need it.
Don’t they look lovely altogether!? Have you got any organisation tips? How do you store your embroidery thread? I would love to hear all about it.
Meet me for a chat with a cup of tea in the comments below. I’ll click the kettle on!
