Going to and from my sewing group I usually drag my 12" round basket with me.
It's a useful size, deep enough for more than I need. Looks good, is light and I can grab it easily. I am fond of it. Here's the problem. It has no lid. That is OK moving from one room to another. But it doesn't sit in my car so well. I'm not saying I'm a bad driver, but occasionally the traffic stops abruptly and my basket and its contents are flung wildly around the car.
My mother came up with a nice solution for me
It is a cute little box (with lid) that reminds me of my primary school sewing box from more than 40 years ago. It came as a little carry-all for potions and creams. I think it is now far more useful than it was originally!
Unfortunately at 10"x8" it is too small for my new pincushion! Thank you, Janet for thinking of me. It will be my stay-at- home pincushion.
In front of the gorgeous pincushion are 10 blocks waiting for a border. 20 more brothers and sisters have to be produced and then I will have finished the top of my version of Karen Cunningham's "New England Fall" started 2006. Hopefully I will show you the completed top next post.
