    Cats are "very helpful" when you are trying to sew. I was adding elastic to a pair of basketball shorts for my grandson yesterday. I was feeding the elastic through the waistband and I was getting some resistance. I looked down to see my kitty pulling on the other end of the elastic. It is kind of like having two 2 year olds when my kitties try to help me.

    I love this idea! WalMart has some great glass jars with lids that would work perfectly for these awesome storage ideas. I bought them in assorted sizes to use as canisters in my kitchen. Love being able to see the flour and sugar to know when I need to buy more. I was afraid they wouldn't keep bugs out, but no bugs!!!

    good idea.......like ther knitting needles in the vase....I have a "few" vases around, time to re-purpose them!!!! Glass containers are fun to look for at the local Goodwill/Salvation Army/Resale shop..........those are my suppliers!!!

    I can't believe your shoe pin cushion. I made one from the same kind of plaster shoe many years ago for a dear friend. Love your jar organization, I love glass containers.

    Great job! I also love the Glass containers, have a few vintage Ball containers with the hinged lids. One is quite large and the notions I have in there right now always get lost in the bottom. I'm re-purposing this for spools of thread and moving the other items into sorting boxes for easier retrieval. We also have a very large (basically wall-to-wall) window to our enclosed garden room right off the living room and my sewing machine is there because I also love to listen to the birds as I sew. Nice overstuffed couch to sit on as I plan my project, great new sewing station and the glass jars look so pretty from the window, full of my favorite colors. I just need to buy more jars! thanks for sharing your idea!

    I love your collection of glass jars. It's so pretty. I love anything to do with organization!! Thanks for sharing your great sewing space.
    10-2-12, the lucky day I became a granny! I just love my Avatar photo. That is my grandson. He has his hands thrown up in childish abandon trying to catch bubbles. Even though you can't see his face clearly, the look on his face steals my heart. It's my favorite.
