I thought I would show you something that I have found to be very useful in my stitching endeavours over the years. Something simple, something easy to make....it's my rubbish bin/pin holder thingy!!
I got this idea from somewhere years ago, and decided I needed to make one. It has been so handy. You start with a small cylinder of 'Pringles' chips.
First, you eat the chips!!! Then, wipe out the crumbs and cut a small hole in the lid. Place lid on the cylinder and 'voila' you have your own rubbish bin/pin holder thingy!!!
I take this little bin with me wherever I take my stitching, on holidays, to a friends house, at the doctors....and I will always have some spare pins, needles, and a place to put my stitching rubbish.
On another note I am currently trying to design a hexagon quilt at the moment, which is why I haven't been doing much sewing lately. You can read about it here....I made a bit of a mess of it, but I think of on the right track now!
Also, I don't really want to tell you, because I want to win it, but I will be nice and share....if you hop over to Aneela's blog you may still have the chance to enter her competition. She is giving away a QUILT!! for her 100th post. How generous, and a beautiful quilt it is, so go check it out.
Don't forget, if you want the chance to win 25cm each of these fabrics, leave your comment here.
