I had a similar problem with my bead containers, but I had a different approach. My lids are screw on (so I know they are secure) and I just turned the tubs upside down. It also gives me an idea of how much I have.



You do know you are a genius...I just slapped my head and went "duh"... Cheesy

texscrapper--your baby items are so cute!  I have never tried minky...everyone says it is really soft and cuddly!

craftylittlemonkey very good condensing efforts, you have inspired me; I think I will go back over some of the stash I have organised and downsized and see if it can be downsized even further.

texscrapper I am certain the baby shower gifts must have been appreciated, they are so personalised and thoughtful!

I am sorry I have been rather quiet as of late. My job was sooper busy. Now that things have calmed down a bit I started crocheting a baby blanket for a coworker and I am making a list of some other projects to start. I will get back to de-stashing now that life has calmed a bit. Smiley

A small stash reduction project; I bound a notebook from stash papers and stitched a stash fabric cover. Just in time too, it is a gift for someone leaving on a trip overseas (so they can document their adventure) and I see them for the last time tomorrow! The rush is my excuse for the washed out photo and slightly crooked cover, but it was my first time making a journal from scratch so I was very happy with it and wanted to make sure I took a picture to share with you  Smiley

Inspiration without application is moot.

Very pretty. Is that supposed to be an umbrella or is that just what is on my mind from the rain outside?

Okay my partner in the one little pincushion swap has gotten her package so I can show you all the two I did for her.  Yes we agreed on two.

I send other things, But the only pics I have of them show other swap things in the background and that one hasn't gone out yet. I found one I could use woohoo So gotta wait
I took both idea's from her Pinterest List

The first one from this how to
http://oneinchworld.com/blog/index.php/2009/03/felt-armchair-tutorial/



The second was inspired from this image, but the link did not work. So I had to create it myself.

I just had to make some pins to go with them



well and wonderment

A journal is a nice gift for people going on lifetime adventures!

carolmb--very very cute pincushions!  I especially love the vintage one...those fabrics are lovely and show off your quilting skills of putting together tiny pieces!  Also love the matching pins!

Craftylittlemonkey, I don't have an many vials as you, so I did glue a sample bead to the tops. However, I have others that I put on a spice rack. I attached the rack to the side of a bookcase. It holds a lot in a narrow space. You could mark the tops with a dot in the general color, so at least if you were looking for blue, you wouldn't have to pull out all of the other colors to check them.

: rottenlittleboys : Good point; I didn't have anything in mind when I was stitching but come to think of it, it may have been raining here at the time as well!
: carolmb : both of those pin cushions are nicely made, I particularly fancy the round one.
: craftylittlemonkey : the words "had to transfer the monster factory out of the livingroom again" are going to make me giggle now and again for the rest of my life  Cheesy
