My little "How To"....

I've had a couple people see this in my little sewing corner and comment on it's handiness. I figured I'd share it with you all so you can have a little handiness in your lives too:)
I was getting so frustrated trying to dig out my bobbins from a random container, and I don't want to even know how many times I filled a bobbin with some thread only to find I already had that color wound! grrrrrr! When I'm sewing little things tend to bug me to no end, winding bobbins, seam ripping.... when I'm in a groove, I want to sew!
Anyway, moving right along to the "how to"--it's super simple. I just took an existing frame that I had laying around from a garage sale, stuck some cork(also from a garage sale!!) where the glass used to be and used pins pushed in at an angle to hold the bobbins in place. I happen to have ones that had pretty colors on them so that made it look a little bit spiffier:)
See?!? Cute, right?

Now they are where I can see them and access them readily! The embroidery floss was there because I didn't have more bobbins at the time and, well, I thought the colors looked too pretty to be in some container:)
