WOYWW #58

Thought today I would keep it short and sweet and show you my ribbon storage as not much is happening on my desk at the moment as I have been busy finishing my crossstitch (see below) and also preparing classes that I dont want to show just yet!
Thanks for looking :) and also thank you so much for all of your wonderful comments over the past three weeks - I really enjoy reading them all!

To find out what all the desk business is about go to http://www.stamping-ground.blogspot.com/

edited to add that the ribbons are wound around dolly pegs with the one end hanging over the top held by the ribbon wound around the peg and the other loose end tucked in at the bottom (if you do this too dont hold the end in by a pin as they all keep catching and its a nightmare!). The box is actually part of the 16 really useful boxes set - its meant to house the 16 boxes but I have just taken mine out and stacked them on three individual piles and used the case as an extra storage unit).

Love the box of ribbons, what a great idea for them. Well done on your cross stitch too, I haven't done any for ages.

That box of ribbon is very colorful. I bet it took you a long time to wrap all those around pegs. Nice way to store ribbon, though. Happy WOYWW.

Love the peggy ribbon storage and so neat too. That cross stitch is incredibly, so much detail, no wonder it took two years, it would take me 20! Hope your little boy loves it.
