No one will ever accuse me of being a neat freak...but I do like things organized in my own way. When I started quilting, my dear sister gifted me with a cute metal thread holder that hangs on the wall. It was sufficient to hold my then inventory of thread which pretty much consisted of cotton spools in basic colours: white, black, ecru, blue, red and green.
obsession supply kept growing.
Two cans house my treasured hand-quilting threads, extra-special to me as many of the spools came from my grandmother's supply.
Hubby came to the rescue with a wooden board in which he hammered long skinny nails on an angle. It wasn't pretty, but worked very well for many years.
