    Default Beautifying Medical stuff on my dining room (and only) table.

    I got sick of the dining room table looking so medical with certain bottles looming at the ready. It is in the great room and the dining area is open next to the LR and Kitchen and “office”, actually hobby area for me, office for DH.

    So, I took a big plastic bottle that had held a grainy, dry med and wrapped it in embroidery thread. Did the same for empty can f walnuts. .... it helps.

    Excellent solution and the medical reminder is now art. Well done.

    Beautiful and clever! Probably yarn could be used instead of embroidery thread? Did you use a special type of glue? You did a really neat job. Nice color scheme too.

    I had lots and lots of small cards of all different colors of embroidery thread, which is six strands thick and stays together as six strands. I only had to glue the ends of the thread. Each stripe equals one card of that color. It lays flat and I like that it’s not fuzzy like yarn can be. And flatter than yarns that I am familiar with. I am not a knitter or even anembroiderer per se. I am a beginner embroiderer. I have failed too many times at knitting !

    I used elmer’s school glue, just at the last and first 4 inches of each new color.

    Sunshine, my Mom loved to embroider and passed many hours doing it. I have a number of things that she did, which I treasure.

    I don't know how you got it to turn out so neat, Sunshine. If I'd tackled something like that, the glue would have oozed out and show up all over the thing, and the rows would be crooked.

    Great idea! A colorful, cheerful, artistic camouflage for your meds.
