Whither the crafts?

So, yes, it has dawned on me recently that this seems to have evolved from a craftsy blog into a strictly Lara-is-cute blog, and that this is fairly unintentional. In reality, I've been working on a very long project that I don't want to photograph until it's actually done, which will hopefully be soon-ish.

But, a quick craft-related post. I can't imagine I'm the only person for whom beautiful embroidery floss from the store quickly ends up looking like this:

Embroidery thread - messy

But I might be the only nut to handroll all of the floss onto handcut cardboard bobbins.

Embroidery thread - clean

It does look much nicer, though - and repurposes the clear plastic box that Misha's memo cube comes in. Now I just need some shelves for the craft area...
