My husband bought me some new perfume, which I adore. I also adore the pretty box it came in. I needed something to hold the extra thread from my latest Connecting Threads order and, six rows by seven, the spools fit in this box perfectly.
Thinking it would be nice if I had enough thread to fill the whole box, but knowing that I didn't, I pulled the spools out of my treadle sewing machine drawer and a few from a box in the sewing room and was pleasantly shocked to realize that I've got eighty or so spools of usable thread, almost enough to fill a second box if I had one.
It looks like so much less when it's neatly put away! Yes, that's a lot of black and neutral thread, but it was just on sale for the first time in forever, so I stocked up.
That's my immediate goal for my fabric stash right now -- getting it neatly folded up and put away so it looks like less than it is.
