Slow Sunday Stitching

I've  been busy the past working on my Crow Quilt by Cheri Payne from the book Wednesday's Best.  I finished the applique this morning, and now am doing some feather stitching on the wings, and a crow's foot in the skinny green border on the outside.  I'm ready to finish this one up, hopefully tonight, because I already have the pieces prepped and ready to applique on the Angel Quilt, from the same book.   I'll be linking up with Kathy's Quilts for Slow Sunday Stitching



Joy@ Days Filled with Joy right now is having 31 Days of Getting Organized, and asked how we store our pearl cotton threads.  I mentioned that I had a chest my DH had bought me some years ago, I think at Harbor Freight.  It is 20 inches long, and 16 inches wide.  


 The top of  the chest opens up, and I have my specialty threads I use mostly for crazy quilting projects.  


The inside has 8 small drawers and a big one at the bottom.  This is where I have my pearl cotton balls.


I also have a drawer for my sparkly Kreinik metallics.


I have a drawer with very wide silk ribbon.  Sort of looks like a mess right now.


This is the bottom drawer with more pearl cotton/


That's it for right now.  Thanks for stopping by!

Your thread chest is amazing. I like how organized it is. The crow quilt looks terrific. That book is out of print, so hang on to yours. There are two used ones at Amazon for $43 and $55!

a lovely way to store your threads & ribbons.

I always love to see how others store their threads. After years of crazy quilting and embroidery, you’d think I might have a decent system. Nope. They’re just in large gallon baggies (balls of perle, spools of Kreinik, etc) by color. That is an awesome chest you have for the threads. It seems to hold everything perfectly! I wonder if Harbor Freight would have anything like that these days....
