All of my Weeks, Classic Colorworks, Gentle Arts, Victorian Motto and Colour & Cotton floss is stored on rings, first by company, then in alphabetical order. There are four rows – the floss rings are hanging on the edge of the sewing room closet shelves.
This morning I was cleaning out the drawer in the table next to my shelf upstairs and found a couple of skeins of floss so I brought them downstairs to add to the “To Be Hung Up” boxes.
I have a box for all the brands I use and as new floss would arrive, I’d put it all in the appropriate box and then once the boxes started getting full, I’d hang them in alphabetical order on the floss rings. Most of what you see in those boxes is what I’ve found in bags and drawers and under my chair or floss that was pulled for a kit I decided not to kit up right now.
I was just sitting down to write a blog post about the good side of not buying floss, aside from saving money . . I don’t have to spend so much time putting it where it goes.
Vince walked in with a grocery sack of floss that he found in the downstairs garage. Ughh! More floss to put away. There’s no telling how it got out there. Some of it was floss I had used on a recently finished project. Some of it was probably floss I had pulled to audition for a project and I tossed it in the bag to hang later.
Vince said it was in a box with some things I had brought downstairs so I’m not even going to try to figure out any more rhyme or reason for it being in the garage.
But, it did make me thankful I’m not buying floss right now.
