A Great Find for Crafters

It's outdoor Wednesday and I've spent most of the day outside~walking Hunter, going out with friends and running errands outside. Where or where do all the hours in a day go? In my new quilt group, we have a charm exchange of 5" squares of fabric. The first time we did this the leader brought her fabric in the Snapware container. I hadn't seen one before, but it works perfectly for 6" squares. So yesterday when hubby and I ran to Joann*, I found one and got it with a 40% off coupon. I am thinking of putting my 6" squares for the sampler in it. I could find all sorts of things to put in this and it is sure to become a favorite of mine. I also like that they come in lots of different sizes and are not too expensive.
Today I went to a quilt store that I hadn't been to in years and loved the new classroom that they've added-might just be a place to take some summer classes.  The owner also encouraged me about our trip to the Sisters, Oregon quilt show this summer.  I had tried to sign up for 2 classes, but they were sold out the morning after they posted them.  She told me that several years ago she went, signed up for five classes but got notice she only made it into two.  However, when she arrived she was told all the classes had openings and she was able to take all five.  Even if I don't get into the original two that  Barbara and I choose, we are still hoping to get into one of Linda Ballard's mystery quilt classes.
Well, I'm off to get dinner started and see if I can get back to the sewing room again.  I hope your day has been productive!  I also enjoyed a gluten free lunch at Olive Garden; it's been many years since I've eaten there and figured I'd just have salad, but was so happy to have a pasta dish.


  1. Mom loves all sorts of things like those snapware containers. There is always something around that would do well in those storage containers.

    Here's hoping you do get in to those classes in Oregon. Sounds like they must be very good given the popularity.

  2. Those look great! I love organizing!

  3. Although I do not quilt, I love those snap boxes. I have some that are rectangle that I keep my scissors, markers, tapes and other paper crafting essentials in. I love how they snap together and stack so nicely! I'm sure you will love having them. Enjoy the rest of your week as well and spending time in your sewing room! Blessings, Cindy xo

  4. I love the boxes and such a way of organizing things. I've several boxes like these with the stickers of different colors on the top: every color corresponds to the things that are lying there. It's such a convenience. The Lord has given us such a colorful world - why not use it?

    Keep Calm & Bark On!

  6. Those containers are perfect! We need a lot of them, because I have a habit of getting into stuff that I should not. so mommy keeps all her stuff locked up in there.
    If you get to go to Sisters, its very pretty there.

  7. Great containers, easy to get organized. What a great quilting group. I admire your skills. Time does fly by, especially the older I get...LOL..Blessings and hugs, Linda

  8. Great containers. We have similar ones for Christmas ornaments. I'll look for one for my knitting supplies.
