Tidbits, Post #300 and Contest #6

Some tidbits . . .
Jackie at Canton Village Works is having a contest offering her quilting services for a quilt. Go check her blog out. You'll love her helper.

I received my Cyber Stitching package from Mrs. Martin on Saturday. If you're in the U.S., did you get your package? If we all got them then I suggest we start stitching Friday night and work through the weekend. After all, Australia is about 12 hours ahead of us, depending on what part of the country you're in.

DH and I have our airline tickets for vacation. We are flying to Vancouver, BC on Sunday, June 29th and will be there until July 5th. Then we are going to Whistler, BC until Wednesday, July 9th. We fly home on July 10th. Are there any bloggers out there who want to meet a blogger from New Hampshire?


Now, on to Post #300. Here is another storage container in my studio. This wire stand and bottles was purchased at Kitchen, etc. The bottles were filled with cinnamon sticks, cocoa, cinnamon sugar and something else that I can't remember. I used the cinnamon sticks and cinnamon sugar and then this sat on my bread box for the longest time. Finally I got tired of it just taking up space. I cleaned out the jars, removed the labels and put my slowly growing button collection into the jars. Can you think of anything that says "Coffee Time Quilt Studio" better than this?
Now on to more bloggers who are joining the contest:
Remember, you have until tomorrow night, Tuesday, to share your containers. Since I've shown six containers, you can show up to six containers and will get one entry for each container. There will be three winners and I think I know what I will be doing for the prize packages as long as you can wait until after my vacation for me to get them in the mail.

Those coffee jars are really cute - almost makes me wish I liked coffee - almost! LOL!!

Thanks for your nice comments on my blog. Yes, I'm taking journal making and journaling techniques from Sue Bleiweiss right now, and I just finished taking mixed media techniques from her. She is a fabulous teacher - one of the best online teachers I've had. I highly recommend her!!

Hi Sweet Pea. Your vacation sounds cool. Why did you choose B.C.?
Anyway, I have a pic of my new scrap container. My mother says it never seems to get empty.

My package from Mrs. Martin arrived today (Monday) and I am trying to decide which project to start with....

It seems that Saturday is likely to be a bust for me, stuff going on in the family is likely to impede my stitching on Saturday, so I'm planning to start Thursday night or Friday morning and stitch as much as possible all weekend long!! But which project first??

I am sure that you will enjoy Vancouver. We lived there for a few years when were newlyweds and DD lives there now-- oh yes, the photo right next to my name is here was taken in Vancouver in March.....

Thanks for hosting this container party! I had a blast looking for my containers and seeing what other bloggers use to store their 'stuff' :)

Becky said...

Thanks again for this wonderful way for bloggers to showcase their sewing items! I have posted another blog entry with three more containers. Enjoy your vacation! Love the coffee jars!

Hi Sweet P, I have put up some of my storage containers on my blog. Your coffee jars are great.
This turned out to be really fun!

I added a pic yesterday and today. Have fun on vacation - we're waiting news on the interviews to see what we're doing....

There are some wonderful ideas here. I posted a pic on my blog along with a link to yours. I use a dish drying rack for rulers, pencils, etc.
Thanks...
