The A isn't as wide as it should be. I haven't done this kind of hand work for about 35 years or so (when I was in my teens). I'm making something fun for my sister-in-law for Christmas. Stay tuned to see what it says...
Below is my new sew-to-go box. It fits nicely in the back seat of my truck. I'm starting to love hand stitching enough to expand on my fun stuff. When people at places that know I sew regularly see me carry it in to the bowling alley or speech, they should know what to expect. It has a cute little picnic-basket handle that is down in the back. I need to put a fastener (or Velcro) under the little tab in the front so that it doesn't come open all time in the truck (by accident). I'll think of something that doesn't take away from the cuteness of it.
I bought it at our local Goodwill Outlet. Do you have one in your area? Our Goodwill Outlet is a place where Goodwill items go for their "last chance". Most things (such as this sewing box) are sewn at $1.19 per POUND! Yes, clothes and things by the pound! Items larger than 15 pounds have a different price. Bags (purses) and books are 50 cents each. It's a fun place to "root" for things in big bins...not on hangers... not on shelves... just good old roll-out bins.
Oh, and the little DQ gift card? Owen won the mini bowling tournament last week. :)
I'm linking up with Kathy at Kathy's Quilts for Slow Sunday Stitching.
