Containers and A New Giveaway

Bloggers are still showing their containers. Here are some more interesting containers for you to view. Remember you can post until midnight tonight (EST) to be entered into the contest. I will show the final entrants tomorrow and have DH draw the winners at dinner tomorrow night.
Now, through my contest, I have found a new contest. Becky at the Quilting Booklady is having a birthday give-away and has asked us to show our favorite books and show a quilt we have completed from it. Well, she didn't say we couldn't show a magazine, but that is what I am showing. My all-time favorite quilting magazine is the Stitchery issue of Australian Country Threads. This issue is published once or twice a year. It is the only publication (book or magazine) where I start a project within days of getting it. Sometimes, even hours after getting it. This is current issue and I have already bookmarked three projects I want to make from it.
Here is the first project I started. This will become a stitching roll for carrying projects when it's done.
Here is block I stitched from the first issue of the magazine I bought last year. It needs a border still and will hang on a wall in my studio.
Well, it's time to get my day going. I'm on the last load of laundry and then I can play some more with fabric and thread.

I love your little sticheries, my patchwork mag came the other day and I need to get some iced tea and read it :)
I posted today about the portable desk that I use for hand sewing on the go...lol. It's all Serena's fault though.Did you see we lost our ace pitcher for the summer *SOB* and talk of trying to get Sabathia- I'll be Red Sox fan before the summer's over at this rate :( And the Mets fired Willie tough baseball in NY for the fans :(

I haven't visited your blog in a long time and read about your contest on one of my yahoo groups. I am so excited to see what others are using as storage containers. Hopefully my stuff will give someone an idea too!

I think I have this issue of the magazine on the way to me.
I'm in love with the dilly bag on the front cover and can't wait to make it.
