Okay. I got to admit, I’m not the most organized person. Terry just walks into my office and shakes his head.
But it’s not really disorganization. It’s more like clutter.
Because my head is cluttered.
Therefore my office/sewing room is cluttered.
I always have two sewing projects going and strewn about in the sewing corner.
Then there are the websites to update and the community groups I’m involved with. That requires layers of paper.
Plus all those silly day to day things (like paying the bills and cleaning, fortunately since Terry retired I don’t cook anymore)
You get the idea. I’m a busy person! With stacks and stacks of stuff!
But I really want to be be clutter-free.
Especially in my head.
I got this cabinet from Ikea last year. Ikea calls it Alex. I call it Perfect!
And I love love love it.
I keep all of my necessary sewing paraphernalia in there. Like thread and feet and needles and measuring tapes and…..
it would have really been perfect if I could have stored the bobbins on top of the spools of thread. I just like to have them matched up so I can just pull them out without hunting for the right bobbin.
I had this case but the inserts weren’t long enough to put the bobbins on top.
So I told Terry what I really really NEEDED. And (after he was done cooking for a moment) he made it!
And I hope you noted I still had thread in two of those drawers. So I possibly need a special thread drawer for all of the embroidery thread! And one for the extra thread that didn’t fit in my special thread drawer although Jack tried really hard to cram it in.
And I JUST WENT TO IKEA YESTERDAY! A new Alex for me! More work for Terry!
(But my head is still cluttered!)
If you are interested in making this thread drawer, I have made a second thread drawer using golf tees which is a LOT easier! Here’s the link: https://designsbyktgreen.com/lets-get-organized-thread-drawer-part-2/
