Don't they look pretty, though? It is so nice to be able to see what I have without digging.
I was surprised at how many different colors there were once I got it all sorted out.
I briefly entertained the notion of doing the same thing with all the loose ribbon and then I came to my senses. Not now. NO. I am ready to work on something new!
They are not pictured but I even saved the scraps that were less than 12 inches. I wrapped some of them around wooden spools, some around embroidery floss holders and some just left loose in the cute wicker sewing basket I showed you in this post.
Free at last!
