Hello My dears!

I have been trying to get organized in my new sewing room. Slowly but surely. I have also promised myself I I would use only the materials I have on hand. No more spending unless needed for the rest of the year. Of course there may be that fabulous deal that I just will not be able to pass by ;-)

Starting with my thread organizer.

It turned out very nice!

Want to see how?

You are going to need some peg board ( already on hand from the scrap pile at Home Depot), dowel rods, scissors, wood glue and a pair of needle nosed pliers and a marker. Oh and don't forget a frame. Totally forget to get a picture of it!

Cut all your dowels in pieces of 3 - 4 1/2 inches. Depends on the size of your thread. Cut as many as you think you need or are going to need
Glue each rod into every other hole. I recommend placing wax paper under your project so the glue will not stick to the counter or your work surface.

Measure before and mark where you should start with your frame. I didn't and my first row ends at the frame. It didn't hurt the final product though.

Now let your glue dry.

Grab your Spray Paint. paint that frame! I choose Berry Pink here... not my first choice, but it was what I had. And paint the peg board too.

This is what I see when I sew.

Hope you like it!

P.S. I logged in and I have 50 Followers!! WOW.

Just call me a tease

Hello my dears!

So I am totally getting my butt in gear... ok somewhat!

Between the kids home for summer, The girls going to their father's for vacation or friends houses, or having people over and Monkeyman wanting to play outside all day long until dinner, there hasn't been much crafting going on. AH! summer time.
Lots of reading to Monkeyman. A total addiction to Pinterest, especially on my phone. Now I am on twitter, too.
Lord, when will I find the time!

I did start a project on sunday.
Can you guess what it is going to be?
