You have some embroideryfloss wound on some cardboard, and stored in a box. An old friend of yours does some clearing and she thinks you would like to have her floss. So she gives her box to you. Now you have two boxes. In time you buy some new floss but the boxes are full so a new one is quickly found, and then you have three boxes. And they look somthing like this...? If so, read further because ther's a sollution haha
I had the intension to do something about it and had even bought some special storageboxes that came with the bobbins to wind the floss upon. But the prospect of that tedious job of winding.... As ill-luck would have it a back injury has made me more or less immobile, so there was no more excuse to set this job aside.
It took some time and effort, but now it's far more easier to select your colors. By number or by choise, in an instant your done. And its a true pleasure to feast your eye upon the boxes! A rainbow in miniature.
There's still work to be done, but I am out of bobbins. 200 Done and I guess I need another hundred to finish it all, but doesn't it look great already!
Here are some more rainbows that I've spotted. There all around us ;-)
