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.
