I found these boxes at a specialty food store which also sell wines and cigars. I think they are pretty and beats the plastic containers where they originally lived. At the bargain basement price of $2 each I bought 5 of them. (I already had 2 boxes that I picked up a while ago which houses my beaded trims.) My thread now live a tangle free life. Now, if I could devise a cute and clever way to label or make a distinction of the contents of each cigar box without marring it too much, that would be grand.

|And the new thread boxes|
|Even the elastic threads have a new home|

Now, if I can only keep all of my fabric and notions in order I'll be really happy.
The next project - lighting, another bookshelf and purging of unwanted stuff that has invaded the studio area. Oh! and the garden. And always, thinking up new designs to pattern and sew.
