Remember my place by the sofa that got cleaned up just before the holidays? The place where I sit and sew. And, pile things,
It was never going to stay neat.
My Mom gave me a bag of things she wanted me to have when I was there. One of them was this cedar box that she got from a furniture company when she graduated high school.
When I got it home and got it unpacked, I realized it was the perfect box to help me confine things on my table and maybe I could keep it a bit neater, a bit longer. That brass bucket in the background is my trashcan.
I made a pincushion out of the dog fabric that my friend Barb shared with me and I filled it with ground walnut shells. And, it was too big and I emptied it and cut it and sewed it and filled it and it was too big and I emptied…you get the idea. It took a couple of tries to get a pincushion that would exactly fit the box. I added a pair fo scissors, a seam ripper, wax disc in a tin, some needles and a thimble and I’m all set. And, when I’m done, I just close the box.
Everybody have a great Friday. Tomorrow is the first bee of the new year.
