Schala-Kitty has posted an awesome tutorial on Crafted with Zeal for using a spreadsheet to track your inventory of embroidery threads. She says,
I like to call them Threadsheets and I find them to be a great way to know just what you have with a single glance. I’m a big fan of digital patterns and motif collections over kits so that means I buy all of my thread separately. I need to be able to easily know exactly what I have at any time so that I don’t buy too many duplicates. This also helps when I’m designing and want to know what colors I have to work with.
Brilliant! See the tute.
Many thanks to Orin of Shiny Things for pointing out this find.
