Floss cabinet

Carol asked about the cabinet peeking out in my last post. That is my floss storage cabinet. It is actually a CD/DVD cabinet but it holds my floss bags perfectly! This was a birthday gift from Rick a couple of years ago. You can shop for your own here!
This is also little Miss Taco's favorite sleepy spot.
My floss is stored in zippered floss bags with a 3x5 index card inside to make the bag stand up. When I pull floss for a project, I hole-punch the card and add the bag onto floss rings. The white card makes it easy to spot which bag I'm needing. If I have tons of colors for one project, they go into an index card box. You can see them in yesterdays photos on the shelves...they look like green drawers.

That is a fantastic idea!!! My DH, who also stitches, is anti-bobbin because he doesn't like the kinks in the threads, but it's hard to figure out a way to store whole skeins of thread so they're organized. This is a great idea!

Thanks Sharon for showing your gorgeous cabinet. Shame it would cost a fortune to ship one to the UK!
