A Lesson on Organization

Even though I'm in my twenties, I'm truly an old lady at heart.

The needlework says it all.

But what do you do when you have a dozen colours on the go? Stick them in a ziplock bag? Nope, they'd all get tangled. It was time to do some organizing!

And thanks to a box of honey nut cheerios and a pair of scissors, I found an easy solution!

Colour codes are written next to each thread.

I'm glad I did this closer to the beginning of this cross stitching project as opposed to the end!!

Do you have any "old lady" hobbies? Or have any good organization tips?


  1. Good to know that the freshness of my Cheerios was sacrificed for your organizational purposes ;P

  2. Oh, absolutely! haha. I'm so sorry about your cheerios! Maybe stick them in a plastic bowl and seal with a lid?
