    I have been wracking my brain (what little I have) for weeks trying to come up with a way to get all my thread in one central location. After talking with my friend Sharon this morning I was looking around my sewing room and suddenly realized the 7 drawer jewelry case I had sewing notions (and junk) in would probably be big enough for everything. I have been working for almost 2 hours and have ALL my thread in this cabinet! If you have one of these sitting around somewhere and need a place for thread I really recommend you give it a try. I didn't get a picture of the top drawer but I put varigated and specialty threads in it.

    What a great idea! You could probably find one of those at a garage sale. Much nicer looking thread holder than anything I've seen before! They look so pretty in their new home!!

    Well, aren't you clever! Love it when we can repurpose things in such a great way! Thanks for sharing.
