Look at what I found!

This black tin tub was on sale at Michael's for 50% off so I grabbed it up.  Immediately I thought of stuffing it with smalls but I don't have any except ornaments!  But for those of you that do, I think they would display really well in one of these.  Years ago a stitcher finished off all of her Thread Pack Fruits (there are 12) and filled them in a basket if my memory serves me right.  I thought it was so adorable.  

Just a cute idea for those of you looking for spaces and places to store the little stitches in life.  :)

Happy Stitching,
Diane

  2. Very neat! I was just in the neighborhood of our Michael's this afternoon but didn't stop in. I'll need to go back and see if I can find one of these.
    It was raining so hard and traffic so fad, I figured I'd better get home.

    Diane, I think your referring to a post you did on June 07, 2010. There is a basket with some of your fruit thread packs finished in it called "Fruit Salad". I love that idea! I'll have to see if I can find the tub and do that with all my fruit charts. I have all 12 of the thread packs and didn't know how to finish them. :)

  5. Diane - what a great idea. I see it as the perfect hostess gift at Christmas time or you could fill it with hearts for Valentines, Bunnies for Easter etc. The tub is adorable. I'm headed to Michaels in Phoenix tomorrow and see if any are left! Thanks for the great idea.
