embroidery floss tackled
Sometimes it's the little things that make you so happy. This is one of them. For years now my floss has been a mess in plastic bags shoved in an old army bag. A lot of the pieces were all in a tangle. I didn't get good sleep a few nights recently and this was the absolute perfect project for lack of brain cells. It's so hypnotic to just wind and wind around these bobbins. When I was done there was no way I was putting it back in the bags so off I went to find a home for all this lovely embroidery floss. I found an old tackle box that works perfectly.
I love all the little compartments and there is room below for extra floss, needles, more bobbins and some metal rings to bring the floss color palette with me when I travel with a stitching project on the road.
I'm a happy girl.
Here are some embroidered dollies I made last year from the stitchette patterns that will be perfect little friends for my girl next year. I received the Acorn Fairy stitchettes in the mail last week which I am itching to try out and I've also been holding onto these for a while. A dress or smock top with embroidered flowers for the baby would be so adorable.
