After my success making a set of shelves for my fabrics a couple of months ago I decided to have another go earlier this week. This time I purchased some pine lengths (mostly 10 x 80mm) and cut them up to make myself a snazzy little shelf to store my larger reels of thread.
Dressed pine was so much easier to work with than the fibreboard I had used previously - I found that the screws just went in without grief and the whole project had less gaps! I can't wait to have another go at this, but first I have some bed heads I made many years ago that need sanding and staining - a big job.
The top row of my shelf has my collection of wooden cotton reels. Below that I have perle cotton, overlock thread and at the bottom right my aurifil thread.
Excuse the wallpaper - my sewing room used to be the room my husband had when he lived at home. We have plans to change the colour scheme.
I have been busy and have a new, finished quilt to share. Hopefully tomorrow. :-)
