I am not going to write much, in case this doesn't work, because I'm trying to do it from my phone. I saw an idea on Pinterest for organizing your thread spools on dowels, and I was talking to my brilliant husband, Seth, about it, and he said, "You could use old knitting needles." My job dropped at his brilliance, because I had been wondering how you would keep them from falling off the other ends of the dowels. I exclaimed, "You're smarter than Pinterest!" He replied that he is also smarter than Facebook. No doubt about that! Anyhow, goodness knows that I have enough old aluminum knitting needles but I have never gotten rid of for some reason. I also lucked out tremendously, when I walk two blocks to the nearest St. Vincent Depaul, and found the perfect vase: wide all the way down with a nice heavy bottom and tall enough to not tip over. Not to mention it was marked at four dollars but was a green tag 50% off week so it was only two dollars!
OK, back to the computer--couldn't do anything with the photos or video from my phone. Let's see....
Well, the video wasn't that amazing anyhow. You get the idea! ;)
