One of my huge frustrations in sitting down to stitch only to discover something is missing. It's either my scissors, a floss, or the chart, I always seem to be searching for something instead of stitching. Just when I get everything located, Lucy jumps into my lap, everything goes flying and the search begins anew. Does anyone else have these problems?
During a recent visit to Hobby Lobby, I found this tray. It is large enough to hold my chart. My homemade make-do helps to keep the fibers organized.
I added a magnet which holds the make-do in place in the tray and is a resting place for my scissors. The ort cup came from The Country Cupboard in Crossville.
The Sew-Lutions magnetic box also came from Hobby Lobby and is the perfect place for needles, needle minders and threaders. The tray is just deep enough to hold Q-Snaps with project.
When I am finished stitching, the tray sits beside my stitching chair. It is a solution which is working for me. With significantly cooler temps, it is finally beginning to feel like fall. Weekend agenda: fall baking (pumpkin bread) college and NFL football and stitching, lots of stitching.
