Day Ten :: Thread! "21 Days To Your ULTIMATE Sewing Space"

Day 10-Thread!

This is another area of our sewing space that could use some serious attention. We have a lot of thread! And really need to keep it all sorted by type, weight, fiber, and color. Solutions?

Clean, Purge, Organize :: Day 10

We are collectors of thread--probably even more so than fabric! Resulting in many boxes, bins, and cube organizers filled with thread. We really want and need our thread to help inspire our creations--color is primary to designing. We like ours displayed front and center. It helps give a nice dose of color to the studio, and is in easy reach. 

Before Example #1! Serger cones tossed in a bin until time to sew/serge again. This is definitely better than in a stacked pile alongside the serger (yes we do that when we get slammed). No more. 
This serger cone rack was made by Allyce's Grandfather--master woodworker extraordinaire! You can also purchase pre-made wood serger cone racks and attach them to rails for a similar set-up (we have 2 more just like that he created for our studio). And since we have several rolling shelf units, we can hook them on the sides for easy reach. This set-up can store a ton of serger thread.
We tend to be in a rush (who isn't pressed for time while sewing?!) and sometimes toss threads in a clear shoebox to try to contain the clutter. While it isn't the worst solution, (it IS clear so you can see through) it's not quite ideal. Here's a much better solution!
These storage boxes that swing open to view your thread is SO inspiring, as well as organized. This is one of our Sulky Rayon collections, all neat and easy to match up colors as needed for when we get the urge to do machine embroidery. Much better than thrown in a bin. 
It IS time-consuming to dig out of the thread avalanche. But with pretty displays like the above, it is motivating to get it all sorted out. And makes sewing, serging, quilting, and embroidery a fast set-up (Cindy's main goal for this challenge).

 

Watch for Day Eleven of "21 Days to Your ULTIMATE Sewing Space" to arrive soon.

    CS GO – Why no one never gets bored

    CS GO is the most noted and most played multiplayer game till now. The game is being played in every area of this world in, every gaming cafe, in every PCs and Laptops and even on Nearly every Xbox.
    CS 1.6:

    CS Source is actually a modification of Half-life game which had already been released in the late 90’s. This first person shooter epic is a tactical and strategy based FPS which tests the brain and responsive mastery of the user. Valve Inc took charge of creating this FPS in the year 2000, modified it by adding some new new and exciting addons to it.

    CS GO has been a source of entertainment for the players since its infancy. The question is why? Well, it is actually that type of shooter which never actually gets out of the grace even if one plays it for decades.
    Why Counter Strike 1.6 is Interesting:

    One can simply never get accustomed to it since it allows the users to customise it according to their experience and preferences. One of the main uses of this customization is called “cheating”. [url=https://leaguecheats.com]CSGO Hacks[/url] are the most thrilling item of online FPS and most of the gamers have actually become the hackers by the time they are good at CS. Some may want to play CS on the beginner skill and the maps with which they are familiar with but the point is that most of the expert players just want some different things to increase their interest in that game. LeagueCheats hacks works on WarGods, WarGodz, sXe injected, [url=https://leaguecheats.com/wiki/esportal-cheats-hacks/]Esportal[/url], GamersClub, EAC, Challengeme.gg, 99damage, FaceIT, SoStronk, PVPRO, GOLeague, ChallengerMode, FastCup CSGO, Akros, Vale Anti Cheat, VACNET, Gfinity, CEVO, ESL, FaceIT Server Side, SourceMod Anti cheat, Kigens Anti Cheat, PopFlash, Kickback, and ZenGaming. [url=https://leaguecheats.com/wiki/]Buy CSGO Hacks[/url]

    So, editors can edit different maps for their own style or for their dedi servers. Isn’t it beautiful that you play every match on multiple maps and then you try to get command over that particular level by playing over and over via spectacular engagements. This in my perspective is the number one reason why no one ever gets bored even after tons of games.

    The leavels can be edited through different programs and software, which are absolutely free to use and one can be skilled in it by watching YouTube tutorials. Most people know that CS Source came with tons of maps but the point is that it came only with some basic maps but over time the modders created some varied distinct maps on the Valve Hammer platform which the users have been downloading them via multiple websites.

    Another thing which is keeping CS 1.6 replayable and exciting is the option to make your own servers. One can make a separate root for their own teammates so that they can have some brutal battles with each other or they can invite other clans for a match.

    Also, there are also many interesting sprays available which the users can customise and can spray them on the walls or anything else. The spray logos actually show the hold of the particular players or clans.

    In other words customising CS Global Offensive was never so easy before. Now one can never get used to this exciting action game.

    Also, within all the games that have multiple modes are installed several features that are providing the players with noteworthy moments spent in front of the personal computer. Whether you are a child or already a grown up it is impossible not to have played at least for once GO .
