Sunday morning was when my disaster occurred. I just fed the dog. Had a nice hot cup of coffee in my hand. Ready to do some computer work. When all of the sudden I heard this noise. A noise unlike any I have heard before. It was really quite an amazing sound. What the heck...where did that come from...I figured it out. My sewing closet. I whipped opened the door and this is what I saw!
Thread. Everywhere. Bobbins. Bags. Thread organizer. Yarn. I was stunned. It was way too early to deal with this!!! Oh command hooks...why, why, why??? I shouldn't have been surprised. It hung on the wall for years without budging. Sooner or later the 'stick 'em' will no longer stick!
To be honest, I let it be for most of the day. Eventually I did pick all the spools up. They were everywhere!
The spools weren't so bad. The bobbins on the other hand...were a mess! I saved the ones that had the most thread on them and unwound the rest! I was surprised at how many bobbins I had with little thread on them. I couldn't really do much with so little!
I hammered in a proper hook that will not go anywhere! It is secure and this will not happen again!
Have you ever noticed how a praying mantis rocks back and forth? So bizarre! I saw this guy on Sunday after I finished with my thread chaos. I'm going to say he was doing a victory dance for me...
