This snazzy cotton reel holder was my gift from the little fellow. I had been meaning to bang a bunch of nails into a slice of wood (er, that terminology indicates my woodworking experience) in order to tame my unruly basket of cottons for oh, years.
I guess he got tired of hearing me talk about it.
However it came about, i am much pleased.
No more rummaging about getting all in a tangle for me!
Funny, in this de-cluttering lark (yup, i am still going), it's the simple changes that are so life changing. I'm kinda de-cluttering my internal head space as i go. That's life changing too.
More about that another time.
Now, er, the embroidery threads...hmmm.
When they get back from holiday, Woodwise on felt.co.nz has a lovely range of simple rectangular cotton reel holders that fit neatly into drawers...HERE.
