Snippet Holder

Hello!! My glass jar that holds my thread ends and wool "butts" was just not
holding enough, sooo I made this. It is a larger wooden box that I placed a great
label on...and the saying is perfect. No second guessing what's in it. I have dumped all
of my little "trash keepers" into one container. When this gets full I will dump it in the yard
for our feathered friends to help in their nest building. I am thinking that this will hold a whole lotta pieces of thread and wool.
So, how is your Monday going? Mine is typical. I had to go by a new phone today. I dropped mine yesterday not once but three times...and it died. Since we have handsets on three floors
I had to find one with multiple handsets...boy have they gone up in price since four years ago.
When I bought my old one I think I got it at Lowe's...they do not even sell them anymore. Today
I have not broken anything but I did manage to drop an entire bag of open rice. My little dog thought it was treat time!! It was a fight to see who could get it cleaned up faster...him or me!
I don't think he was really trying to eat it just scatter it about for me a little more, like it
was not already ALL over the pantry. But I guess I needed to clean up in there anyway, and so
I have managed to rearrange a bit in there. Do you ever start one thing and end up doing something else completely? Like when I dust, I end up rearranging the furniture in an entire room...I guess that is why it takes me forever to clean!!LOL
I went to Jo-Ann's today, bought more fabric and some quilting stuff, I am hooked on those
little covers that we made Saturday, I have made a couple more since then. They will look really cute tucked in a cupboard or used as a candle mat.
Well friends, I am off to the basement to do some inventory, cut some more squares and
tea stain some items...hopefully I will not drop the entire jug off tea!
Have a Blessed day.


  1. Neat box, perfect for your orts and "butts"...and thst is a cool label.

    Quick question. Are you hand stitching the little pieces for your quilts? hugs, Linda

  2. Hi Linda...yes the little coverlettes are hand stitched and then grubbied up a bit. Thank you for your visit. Blessings to you

  3. What a great idea! Can you tell me where you got that great sheep image? LOVE IT!

  4. Hi Gayle, I gor the labels off ebay. Try Farmhouse Primitives and if that is not it try and search grubby labels. If you still can't find them let me know and I will look at the shop for her name. I know I have. Thanks for stopping by!!

  5. I've made another small quilt and I'm working on a table runner. I guess I'm hooked, too!!
    Love the cute wool container!!
