24 shades of wool...


I've been looking for a way to store all of my roving since I seem to have acquired
quite a stash over the past 5 years.
Baskets and old suitcases work o.k but eventually it all gets muddled up
and I end up not really being able to see what I've got on hand.
I found one of these Ikea wine racks in the thrift store for $6
and quickly went to work on the transformation.
wine racks
Using some fabric, mod podge glue, a few upholstery staples and some
heavy duty paper, I now have it organized to see at least 24 shades of wool...
All ready...at my beck and call...
I still have quite a bit of extra bits of wool and will keep my eye out for another wine rack.
Two of some of my favorite things rolled into one!
Voila...
Wine rack / Wool rack!

Wow, what a great idea. My wool is in plastic tubs, and it's always too time-consuming to find what I'm looking for. I think you've found a great solution!!
