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)!
