In-House Transport

I tend to move from room to room with my hand sewing, so I was looking for something that would serve as transport and then as a worktable.

I thought of a handled basket, but the handle would be hard to work around once I was seated.  What to do....

Right after Christmas the grocery store had trays on sale for under $1.  Cheap enough to give this idea a try.  

The rim in deep enough to keep everything in place, but low enough to allow me to work directly from it.

I have a fabric dish with/for Wonder Clips, thread, pincushion and pins, needles, scissors and my project.  I now have a portable workstation that can go upstairs, downstairs, even outside (but not tonight; too cold to sit on the porch.).  Mine is about the size of a dinner plate.

I have finished two table runners which I will share over the next couple days.  Busy, busy fingers!

Blissful hugs,

P.S.  I am listening to The Lincoln Myth by Steve Berry.  I had forgotten one of the reasons I so like his books--he combines history and fiction, but at the end of the book/CD he explains which parts were real and which were not.


  1. Isn't it amazing the things you can find to use to transport your quilting stuff around with.

  2. I still can't quite find the perfect "transport" from upstairs to downstairs. The "balancing act" doesn't work either. I get it all piled up so neatly and then drop half of it on the way.

  3. Now I can put all those fancy trays to good use I inherited from my maternal grandmother. Thanks for the cool idea, Sharon!


Don't be shy! Leave me a's so lonely without hearing from you!
