The "friends" who have threads hang on a hanger with their bag of threads. Those who aren't fortunate enough to have been matched with their threads are in that large green tub with the label "NEEDS THREADS".
The Corona bucket next to the green bin is for threads that need to be filed away. I use the bucket because it gives me some time in case there was a missed stitch to be able to find the thread.
The left-over threads are organized by color in the large drawers on the bottom. (Now that I have been stitching longer, I think it might be better if they were organized by type, but this seems to work better in the closet. I've not gone so far as to start spreadsheets of what is there; some of my stitching buddies have done that and I secretly envy their dedication to the organization of their stash of threads.
Projects that are coming with me when I leave to go stitching are placed in totes and off we go. I have NEVER separated my canvases from their threads.... until now!
When this ornament has come to class with me, there are always lots of questions about the sheep. Sara at PFOS taught me the technique at my very first intermediate class at PFOS, and I just love it! It's Baby Fluffy Fleece from Rainbow Gallery. You simply couch it into place! It comes in a variety of colors, so you can use it for beards, witch hair, anything fluffy. It makes the perfect sheep! Their faces and legs are done in black Petite Very Velvet, also from Rainbow Gallery.
HAPPY STITCHING & I hope if you've lost something, you find it today!
