a huge treasure unearthed...

huge both in size and usefulness. it is 8" in diameter and will hold all my scraps from the white work i've been doing with Karen Ruane. i love that it's see through. i bought it at the thrift store several years ago and forgot all about it.

click on the images for close-ups.

it's light weight and holds a lot
still working on my 'Fun Times' cloth. it takes a long time to do all that embellishing but it is a labor of love. i am truly enjoying it. here are some sneak peeks.

lots of embroidery on the bias band and onto the ruffle

some free motion embroidery petals added
...and if you haven't already seen yesterday's post. there is a giveaway here. winners will be chosen on Tuesday evening. you will need to leave a comment with one of the numbers shown on that post to be included in the drawing.

It will be lovely to see all the scraps through the clear walls - decorative in itself!

Boy, I love a good container! I like that it is clear too...seems fitting for all of those 'white' scraps!

Very pretty, not the usual kitchen container. I like the idea of keeping scraps I to a glass jar.

Els said...

Great that you can still see "what you have" (good for all that white stuff !)
That's always better than knowing the thing you're looking for is in a box .... but where ?!!!!

Really PERFECT container...and all the detail work, plus you're loving it, is uplifting.

Your container is neat and I like how it keeps all those pieces corralled while still visible.

Wow,a lovely see through container! I think the real treasures are the tins and containers :) satin hearts and bullion crosses looks good side by side.

A great container, Deanna! Fun Times just gets better and better, the finished piece will be stunning. xo
