I have a lot of thread for machine embroidery sorted by color families and thrown into large plastic bags that are tucked into a drawer.  For a long time I've been looking at different ways to store thread on Pinterest and surfing the Internet looking at commercial thread racks, shelves, drawers, etc.  I came to the conclusion I don't want to pay more for a rack than for my thread, so my sweet Hubby Jeff has undertaken the project of making me a rack.

The rack is going to be six feet wide and have five shelves.  We bought the wood and trim at Lowe's and Jeff has been busy trying to fashion a rack that I can hang over my table and still reach the top. 

Of course I can't wait until it's done and filled with beautiful thread.  So far it's been a fairly simple project but the real sweetness of the whole thing is Jeff is getting ready to have major surgery that will knock him down for a few weeks.  He's not feeling his best right now, but he's plugging away to get the rack done.  Did I mention the neighbor's dogs and goat dropped in to see what Jeff's making  ~~~

Wishing you a day filled with Peace & Plenty (goats optional)!


  1. What a good husband you have....and I like your visitors - funny how curious the critters are - they are the type of visitors that I prefer...good luck with your new thread rack.

  2. Jeff is definitely a keeper! Nice job!

  3. Barb, I love, love, love your thread rack. It is so cool. Jeff is so sweet.
