My sewing notions, fabric scraps and embroidery supplies live together on this side of the cabinet. Not so pretty, eh? Not functional either. I've had embroidery skeins dump out on the floor on more than one occasion.
Thanks to some birthday money, a rainbow of Appleton Crewel Wool arrived in my mailbox today!
I figured it deserved a nice home, so I sought out this pretty Liberty of London box from Target and some other supplies to reorganize that cabinet.
A bamboo drawer organizer was the main prize. It has a deep lower level and a removeable and slideable upper level for little things. I'm glad to have my rarely-used/backup notions and other random crafting supplies in a non-plastic and more handy home. And, yes, I did specify "non-plastic." While plastic has its uses, I always prefer to look and handle wood and cloth. Obviously just a nicety; but, hey, that's what birthday money is for! I like that it's open on top so I can just grab what I need (which is usually just thread) without removing it from my cabinet.
