I'm cleaning my sewing room (I have a wedding dress to alter). My scrap storage bin has been emptied....all the pieces cut into usable pieces (an entire scrap quilt) sorted and packed away. The it was time to tackle the shelves. On one shelf I hav a container that holds my empty thread spools. Once a year I bag them and put them out with the recycling. It seems I have a lot of empty spools. Does this mean I spend a lot of time sewing?

"I can't get out of the sewing room. The fabric has accepted me as one of their own and if I leave now I might lose their trust." Simplicity patterns posted this on Facebook--it made me think of you (and made me laugh).
@peachpurple I've goggle searched. Things I find on Pinterest drive me crazy. Too many of the links are not active and then when you do find something they want money. None of the plastic spool ideas inspired me enough to get creative, or to make me want to pack them up for a cross country move. I'll be collecting more.
Almost daily. Yesterday was a get little things done day....I changed out the broken zipper in my granddaughters spring coat....then added straps to her new snow pants....Then I dropped the hem in a new pair of pants for myself and rehemmed them...an inch longer....next I cut out a nightgown for my granddaughter. The sewing was interrupted by a phone call that derailed my plans for the week. More about that later this week.
