Maybe I have OCD about Colour??


Last night I worked with an autistic like pedantic-ness to sort out my Buttons and Thread.

Now some might gasp and say “but you have several large boxes to unpack – why do something so trivial?”??

I know, I hear ya and I see that teetering pile of boxes, but I was driven by a greater force.
I was having dreams about it, I was thinking about it at work I was consumed with it and then I saw the several posts on Amy’s blog about colour, and it was almost like fate. I just had to do it.

So I spent around 3-4 hours sorting out all my threads and buttons by colour

And then placed each colour into separate plastic bags and then into Vintage tins.

I can now sleep and think clearly – I think sometimes I do have a little OCD in me!!

Been there, babe... I know your compulsion...
VERY satisfying result, I'd say! Now you'll be able to do all the other things :) K
