Little boxes...

Pretty things they are too.  And, they were already full of fabrics, trim and embroidery cottons for the classes I'm taking.

But......















... I noticed Deanna, from our stitchery classes, is doing daily stitching as a project for 2014 and to make it easier, she suggests a box or container full of all you need to just pick it up and "go".  Perfect.

I wasn't totally out of it....I did have a tiny one with just needles and threads and a few other things and thought how clever I was being, but, honestly.... I still had to gather up the other bits and pieces and move them each time I decided to do a few stitches.... and, you know how it goes...you just get sat down and realize you forgot ...scissors...or hoop. ..or ..whatever.  It's just plain silly isn't it?

Right now, there is an extra love seat and also a couch parked in the hobby room..so, ...no room in there to play.   Still looking for somebody to take the furniture.... which means I move from front room to kitchen, to downstairs ..etc...

I love my pretty little boxes and chose a medium size one to use for my project pieces, then, re-organized all the other stuff in the two other boxes.  Now, I'm armed and dangerous!  With needle book, cottons, scissors, small hoop, etc. in my trusty "go box", I'm set.

Such pretty boxes - they will give you inspiration to stitch, not just because you're organized but because they're so pretty!

I have boxes for my projects but not as pretty as yours. I use clear shoe boxes that I put all the stuff I'm going to use in. Being clear I can see right away which project is which:)
