Life is good when your embroidery floss is tidily stored on thread bobbins.  Life is even better when your bobbins smile back at you.

Cute. Thread Bobbins

Cute.  AND useful!  Download your printable here.

I've set to work winding my loose embroidery floss.  The geek in me loves that these little thread bobbins are color coded so that you can match their color to your floss.  Yah, it's the little things.

a world of possibilities

This is my stash of tidy embroidery floss.  Now, don't think I've been winding for weeks!  My mom picked up this handy organizer mostly filled with floss on bobbins from a yard sale.  Score!  I've been filling it in with hand-me-down embroidery floss once wound on my new bobbin friends.  So between winding and embroidering, I've been whiling away the time with Alias a few times a week.  We're almost to the last season on DVD.  I think we'll finish just before season premiers!

Hope you can use the cute printable :)


  1. I saw those bobbins on line a few days ago and fell in love with them too!! I love her embroidery patterns. Alias is premiering?! I thought the final season was back in 2006?? We were devoted fans for years!

  2. So cute and so organised... I wished I was too... Alias, does that still exist?

  3. Stinkin' cute!!! Happy floss :)

  4. No, no, no, Alias is not premiering. We've been watching all 5 seasons on DVD this summer. I meant we'll be done with Alias in time for season premiers of current shows. Sorry for the confusion!

  5. how adorable! And what I love about an embroidery floss stash is that it takes up a small amount of space, but is so full of pretty colors. Not the same with fabric, yarn or scrapbooking stashes!

  6. I have to admit that Alias is one of my favorite shows! (At least the first 3 seasons but I will always watch the entire 5 season series whenever I start watching it again.) Such a great guilty pleasure. I think I need to pop that one back into my DVD player again. Thank for the reminder!

  7. Thank you so much! I printed them yesterday and had lots of fun with them while watching The Walking Dead :D
