Embroidery Thread Organization

I am on an kick to organize my sewing supplies!  Last week I posted my thread/bobbin configuration; today is my embroidery/crewel yarn.

In the past I have put my floss into individual envelopes and labeled each with its number.

Yes, I could find the one I needed easily, but sometimes it took a while to untangle the thread.
The perfect solution for both organization and neatness was to use craft clothes pins.

I rolled the yarn around the pin and tucked in the end.

I wrote the number on the end using a pencil ~ in case I need to erase and reuse.

Now all of the thread I need for a project is accessible and portable.

Happy sewing!  ♥
