Hello friends and readers,
this is a monthly linking up with Stitching Friends over at Serendipitous Stitching.
For each month, We’ll share on the gifts what we’ve received and we’ll write a post on it. Simple right. I’ve just started my stitching journey and I’ve to say that I’m taking things slowly at this point and there’s not many “gifted” pieces that I can show or share it with you.
So for this month of Jan, I’m showing you a Thread box which I’ve
up-cycled from a box given to me by my Mom.
You can read more about it here. The cool thing about this box is that there’s this magnetic clasp and I’ve decided to hold my DMC threads in it.
Once upon a time.. all these threads (okie.. very messy) was just stored in a ziplock bag.. Yes.. that’s really not very nice and un-tidy… 😦
Then I saw this stitching pattern in one of the book which I’ve own.. and though.. emmm.. why not use the pattern and use the box which Mom gave me.. and viola.. I’ll have a stitching box.
and make it as a cover for the box.
And inside the box… All the threads are winded up, DMC # labelled and sorted out neatly. Heehee… 😀 Isn’t that organized now? I’m really happy to see all the beautiful colours.
So gone are the days with threads hiding in that ugly zip-lock bag and I’m really happy with the outcome of this up-cycling project. Maybe one day… if I ever strike lottery, I will treat myself to a proper wooden box. Woooo..~ that will be so cool to have all these thread stored in there.
Until next time, I will drop by on your blog and see your lovely gifts in Jan.
Till we speak again 😀
