Our blog is dedicated to seasonal living: cooking with local produce (sometimes our own), sewing for the home and searching out vintage bargains.

We believe that most of the pleasure is in the journey - in the making and creating, even if in a simple way.

Rainbow colours

Yep...it is a lot of sewing thread!  It was causing loads of hassle when all these reels were thrown in a tray so I applied some thought (took me a while, brain doesn't work too fast) but eventually found a solution.  Just needed to convince someone else that this was a good idea. 

We bought some thin dowel from B&Q and Les came up trumps with this board.  It works brill...easy to see all the colours and stops them from getting tangled...I can recommend it to all you keen sewers out there..
