With all the sewing, I've actually used many spools of thread ( although you wouldn't know it because I've barely posted anything I've sewn. Very soon, really, I'll get cracking soon!). I couldn't just throw out those lovely wood spools. Or the scraps of fabric. It's challenging to figure out what is hoarding and what's collecting. My new rule is, if I can't think of an immediate project for the object, out it goes.
Stay tuned for the post on my chifforobe transformation! I'm just waiting to put the drawer pulls on before I take the picture.
