Contest Day #4

Are you ready for the weekend and Father's Day? I am!

Yesterday's entries into the Storage Container Contest:
There is still time to enter the contest! Come on, show me your storage containers. Here is my next unique container. This is a handmade basket my son bought me for Mother's Day three years ago. Notice the tape measure woven into the basket. Isn't that a great idea? Right now the basket holds odds and ends. I'm going to start using it to hold my stitchery projects and threads.
I hope you have good plans for the weekend. We will busy with graduation parties, Engaged Encounter meetings, Red Sox, Celtics and golf! I may even have time to work on a quilty project or two!

Oh that basket is too cute. I remembered that my meat tray that holds my sewing supplies is really a salad bowl from Arby's. I use several of them in my gardening area too because they are so deep.
I will be posting my next container this afternoon. We can just go on and on about containers couldn't we.

Paula, my storage ranges from the smallest bits of scraps (1/2" to 6") in these reused boxes from a previous [till 2000] place of employment http://bp3.blogger.com/_VZD79IiHtx0/RlUO4_4FrEI/AAAAAAAAAHA/6AP33Fm3sA8/s1600-h/IMG00024.jpg to this wonderful sorting bin from a hardware store many years ago (at least 40) via my DFIL's garage) for my FQ'a and WIPS http://photos1.blogger.com/blogger/2905/3205/1600/sewing%20room%20west.1.jpg
