my sewing box

I found this great container that I use for my sewing box.
It keeps everything I need compartmentalized.  It's light and seals tightly and is roomy.
It's also clear so you can see what you have in it.
It is a 3 level Snapware.

Here you can see the 3 levels.

The other side

I was invited to a quilting club reunion in may and they made these and gave them away to everyone.  I really love it.  I love the happy colors of the 30's reproduction fabrics, and the log cabin block.

The inside has flannel where you can store your needles.  It is very roomy and I can keep them nice and neat. 

These are the last pieces that I need to attach to the recent quilt top I put together. 

Here I keep my other quilting tools in the drawer where I sit to work. 

My sewing box sits with my in progress memorial quilt so it is up out of the way.  I have to get more hearts pinned onto it so I can keep it going too. 
My friend Theresa is a container lover too (more so than me) and she keeps rubberstamping items in her snapware.  If you see one pick it up, you will find it really useful.

not the prettiest face

Here is another bird that stopped by the pond....a turkey vulture.  As I said, not the prettiest of faces.  They do make a statement when they take off though.....such a huge wingspan.  Here is a good site that tells about these birds.  It was very interesting.

feather and flower

Not a lot going on to report.  I picked up a couple of fun things to put in my pencil basket to look at while studying at night, a metal flower that says bloom and some fluffy yellow feathers.  Also you can see my bookmarks from  Thailand that have little tiny dolls on them.  Fun stuff to lighten it all up.
