Sunday Snapshots

I'm only posting one photo today, but it has a funny story.  I told my youngest that once I am all moved in to the new studio, the old space will once again turn into a room for their art, boardgames, crafts, etc.  Well - oh my.  She had this vigourous energy all of a sudden, "come on mama!  Let's get you out of here!  Where do we start?"  Ha!  Well if that isn't a way to have a child clean and declutter with joy, I don't know what is!  Her favourite thing to do is sort spools by colour.  I have fifteen new bins and away we went.

This is only my collection of regular weight threads.  There are about 750 of them.  Half are greens & yellows.  The spools will sit out on a long, long shelf along a wall, just behind where I sit and threadpaint.  : )  It feels great to reorganize things!  There's a number of things I don't need or don't use, so I plan to donate to the Grandmothers for Grandmothers sale next month here in Saskatoon.

p.s.  I have baseboards, door trim, and furniture in now!  YAY : ) 

Happy Sunday

I love your landscapes, I love your thread. I wonder if they are by any chance related? ;-)

Beatrice said...

PS Is it OK if I share your picture of the spools on a French quilters forum?

I don't have nearly as much thread , but I want to organize some in the same way. I looked at containers like that just yesterday.
It looks so pretty!

Yes you may! :) thank you Beatrice. It is also on Flickr and in 7 hrs it has gained 7000+ views!? Wow.

Wow that is indeed a collection of threads. Love the motivation for your daughter to help.
