I feel like this is kind of cheating, but how awesome does embroidery floss look when it's organized?
When I was in fifth grade I had a floss organizer that was packed to the gills with amazing colors. Not for embroidery, but for making friendship bracelets. A few years later friendship bracelets fell out of vogue. I wonder where that organizer ended up? I cringe to think that I probably threw it out during one of my room purgings.
Now I am slowly rebuilding my collection, which is primarily from an assorted pack from Michaels. One day it will surpass my once-upon-a-time collection!
