Storage Needed

    I have started humming an old familiar tune the last couple of days. Remember the Beatles' "When I'm 64"? I did that on Sunday. No, it was a birthday anniversary, not a birthday. I wouldn't do that to my mother twice! But yeah, now I'm 64. Feeling it too.
    I have been running out of room for my tatting tools, books, threads and so on, so for my "anniversary", I decided to do something about it. I have been looking at this for over a year at Hobby Lobby. It is probably overpriced, but I bought it anyway. There are 13 drawers that hold 666 balls of thread. Just kidding! It does have 13 drawers, but I am not at all superstitious and do not have triskaidekaphobia. It DOES hold thread wonderfully. I used 3 drawers just for size 20. I am thinking of sorting by color, but one step at a time. I was able to use a small hutch at the bottom for all my bead boxes. It has worked out quite well.

    One other thing this lets me do. You can see I have books on the shelves next to it, but because of the thread storage drawers, I was running out of shelf space for them. Now I can use my bookcase for my tatting book collection. 


  1. What a lovely birthday anniversary present to yourself! It looks wonderful and being able to see your thread so neatly is wonderful!

  2. I'm jealous. That's all I'm saying!!!!

    1. Well, I would buy you one, but how would you get it on the plane? It would cost a fortune. I don't know if they have Hobby Lobby in England.
