I have a simple system of organizing my embroidery floss. One box (the blue one) has the cool colors and one box (the yellow one) has the warm colors. The only problem is .....it is not working very well.
It is not impossible to get what I need. I can sift through and pull out a wad or skein of color I need for a project. I put a piece of fabric on the arm of my couch and lay out the thread, thimbles, scissors, etc. When the cats are annoying (when aren't they??), I fold the excess fabric over the threads and then the cats will not leave their fur on my threads, or steal the threads and take them all over house playing, "chase the mousie".
post and realized that it IS possible. And if you follow the link, you will get the added bonus of seeing Laura and Frieda playing with thread on their heads! :) It is however, unlikely that I will organize the big mess in my two box system. I might however, start using their method for the new skeins that I purchase. The seed has been planted... :)
