FREE Thread Keeper Cutting File and Freshly Made #118 Card

I usually ‘toss’ my crafts area first thing in the New Year, but this year my (mega-talented) Mr. is recording and mastering a music album with a friend and he needed pin drop, don’t breathe absolute quiet when that was happening.  No flushing toilet, no shutting doors, no phones - even the furnace gets shut down so the fan can’t interfere.  (brrrrrr!)  You will hear more about this in the future…

What does this have to do with the title of my blog?  Well, now that the recording week is over and I can make ALL THE NOISE I WANT, my thoughts are once again niggling on ways to make my craft room more efficient.  One area that needs serious attention is all the bits and bobs of wool, twine and ribbon.


I once picked up this whole container of bits of embroidery thread at a thrift store for $5.  I really liked the way these can be organized and labeled.  So I have modeled my own cut file to make more.

What to do with the little snippets one picks up, or gets via “sharesies” with a friend or family?  Solution:



Personal Use

(zipped file with TOU)

Please PINterest my cutting files, or tweet, FB, shout out from your own blog (meaning don’t pirate my design but just point here, please)  Every link helps fuel my desire to keep creating!  Thank you in advance.

I will be giving you two Silhouette .studio cutting files, one today, the next in a day or two So stay tuned.
