I found these ornament storage units online. Yes, they are just cardboard and a bit pricey(in my opinion), but they are what I have been looking for....lightweight, and versatile!
The first 4 pictures are what I have accomplished this morning.
This is the unit filled and each drawer labeled.
This next is of all the drawers and how much is already in them(I am sure I haven't found all my thread yet!).
These are the bottom drawers. They are larger than the top drawers and have 16 spaces(if all the dividers are in place-which these are). There are size 10 through size 40 threads in these.
These are the top drawers which have 25 spaces in each(when all the dividers are in-and you can see I have some out to fit different sizes....bottom left 2 coordinated packs from Handy Hands, top right lots of HDT still not wound).
This next picture gives you and idea of it's size.
This next picture shows how much more I still have to organize, and where I have to figure out how to put this unit(and the other which isn't assembled or in use yet, but I have it and figure I will need it!), and I am already sure I will be getting at least 2 more units).
***the cardboard "drawers" in the right bottom corner are where most of all the threads were first-now I am deciding what to use those for.....maybe ornaments which is what they were designed for??, maybe not. :)
Well...I hope your day is productive and that some tatting gets in there too!!! :)
