Nails and Quilting!

Recently I posted how I store my metal bobbins. 
Which you can see photos and read about Here
However many of you use plastic bobbins. 
So this got me thinking!

Still use a magnetic dry erase board.
Still use mini magnets.

But here is the solution for plastic bobbins!
After alittle looking I found some flat head nails.

(If hubby only knew what goes on while he is away!)

These seem to be about 1 1/2 inches long. 
And my philosophy is "go with whatever he has".

 Now for this part! 
I really won't care if the points
 were removed or not. That is totally up to you.

You can see how nicely they attach with the magnet.

 The nice part about leaving the point on is you can store same colored bobbins together or several on one nail.

I placed these on my little dry erase board 
so you could see a better photo.
Plus this is great if you are limited in a space.

And better yet, if the nail was long enough it
 could hold the bobbin and a spool of thread!
