I've got lots of favorite things, but decided I'd start out with the most recent. Yes, it is a tool box. I got it at Wal-Mart for $8.00. Yet, I'm not using it as a classic toolbox, the kind for hammers, screwdrivers and duck tape. Nope, it has my hand-piecing quilting supplies for the New York Beauty blocks inside.
The tool box, henceforth called the quilting box, has two snap lids on top for holding small things like thimbles and needles.
Inside, the quilting box sports a removable tray. I keep my scissors and pincushion here.
Then the tray can be removed, to store my block pieces.
It's all so organized, and purple. How cool is that? And definitely an improvement over my old quilting caddy.
The only problem with my new favorite thing is that the lid is a little weighty, and without heavy items like hammers in the bottom, when the lid is open, it wants to tip. I don't mind that little issue. I just allow for it.
