Back in my cross stitch days (years ago) I had a container all organized like this, actually I think I had 2.
I think I was more anal back in the day than I am now. I don't know about you but I hate (hate is such a strong word!) o.k. very much dislike winding all those freaking bobbins. It's so annoying! But oh doesn't it look pretty? Maybe the bobbin fairy will come and wind for me? I have 2 of these bins but I use them for other things instead of floss.
DMC makes these binder pages with long plastic bobbins. I bought some and didn't like them but I thought the binder idea was great. I love to organize things in binders.
Here's how I currently keep mine. In an old holiday cookie tin. A jumbled mess. Nice huh? Can you imagine winding all of this? Maybe I should have a winding party?
In that mess I have whole and partial skeins of DMC and other brands.
Mixed in with all of that I do have some wound bobbins.
I have a little fabric basket a friend made for me that I store all my bits of smaller pieces in. Waste not want not! I really need to go through this soon. I also have a shoebox sized plastic bin that holds my overflow thread.
I'm going to take some time this weekend and take care of this mess.
