    Can you show me your 'finds' for storage?

    Will anyone show me things they found that they use for storage in their sewing rooms? Things not meant for storing our quilting things (scissors, rulers, etc.) but work out perfect? This was my husband's and meant for his work area in the garage. I dibs it and am using it this way.

    This is a silverware caddy for a dishwasher. I use it to hold 'stuff' (corral is more like it!) that I keep out on my cutting table.

    I haven't taken a picture yet but today I had a brainstorm for storing ribbon. I threaded a bunch of spools on a spare knitting needle and put a covered hair band on the other end. I can store the needles in a plastic box or drawer.

    I am using an expandable bamboo silverware holder to hold my EPP hexies and I have 2 of the blue kitchen carts from IKEA. I usually use one of the carts to corral everything I need when working on a project. Right now, there is just a hodgepodge of stuff in it because we moved about 3 weeks ago and I am still putting my quilting area together!!!

    I love the blue kitchen carts from Ikea - just wish I could figure out a good reason to buy one or two of them for myself . . ..
