The wool collection


Those of you who have been reading here for a while know I have a bit of problem when it comes to buying wool. Basically if it looks good I’ll buy…with no idea what I’ll do with it. Now have been much more controlled the last year because I know what a stash I already have. It used to be housed in 3 baskets in the laundry but the wool was spilling out and it was hard to find what I wanted. A while back I saw a great idea on Rachels blog and decided to do something similar with in my sewing room shelves (as gradually I have been selling off my books).

Here’s what I started with…



And after a bit of sorting and organising…


I wasn’t quite sure how to do it so I just sorted by type. Any advice here? I think the strangest thing is it makes my collection not look quite as big don’t you think?



Now that I can find and see all my wool easily I need to decide on my next project…. and tidy up the rest of the shelves.

Oh, and Rachel’s shelves look much better than mine….maybe I do some to buy some more wool after all…..
