Happy needle and some blog awards
My sewing kit, a recycled Cadbury chocolate metal tin box always looks like a mess with bits and pieces of embroidery floss all clumped up like dog fur! Quite a frustrating sight to behold since I have to untangle a rainbow of thread before I get to start stitching anything. Anyway, I found this lovely organizing idea from this neat brazilian craft blog. There is a cute spool template that one can fashion into a felt spool. I made some from plain cardboard. Now my unruly embroidery flosses look quite a bit organised.
I also received some cute blog awards lately! Thank you to Penny of Sewtakeahike and Suzie of Littlebusybee for the Kreative Blogger Award.
The lovely Clare of Clare's Craftroom also gave me a Lemomade Award! Thank you Clare!
