Birthday Present

As I told you earlier it was my mom's birthday this week.  I wanted to get her something that different that she would actually use.  I found this really cute thread holder by Grey Luster Girl, you can find her great tutorial here.  Anyway, my husband made it for me because he is very handy and I am not!  Here is what it started out like.  

We painted it white and I added a few new spools of thread.  

One more great thing is that he made me one too!  I know, I am spoiled.  Hopefully now both of us can keep track of what colors of thread we have and even be able to find where they are.
