I've been winding my embroidery floss around clothes pins for ages. When I was younger I would wrap each skein around the paper card and write the color number at the top. At some point I realized that I didn't care what the color number was nor did I like the way the floss came off the card. A big bag of clothespins will set you right up. If you hold the pin in one hand and give the floss a rip with the other it comes off so easily.
Before wrapping them with floss I painted and stamped them. They looked so pretty I decided to put them in an old bread pan by color.
Another small project I've been staying busy with is my little chalkboard pins. I love making these to clip onto baskets, etc. so that I know what's inside. Of course clipping one on this project was just for fun.
I have some other completed projects to share this week that I think you'll like. You might even want to try making a few yourself.
