OKsewglad, I understand you problem regarding scissors with feet. Mine don't walk away but always falling on the floor. My sewing machine sits in the well of the sewing table and has a 6" space to the right of the machine. Perfect place to put my scissors. Right? Wong! I constantly would be knocking the scissors on the floor. Got mad. Stormed into the kitchen. Dug out small plastic food container. Stomped back to the sewing room. Grabbed the Gorilla Tape on the way. Placed roll of tape on bottom to container, stuck it in corner of the well, slid the machine to right to wedge that little sucker in place...WALAA. No more bending over several times a day retrieving scissors.
My favorite thread cutter at the machine is a kiddie Fiskars scissor I bought years ago at Back-to-school sale. Purple handle so usually easy to find if it jumps out of it's "house."

Oh and I use several sewing themed coffee mugs to store lots of sewing notions. 1x6 rulers, fabric markers, colored pencils, pens, dry erase markers, pens, pencils, Hera marker, etc. Just too pretty to drink from but lovely to look at.

I do the same with sewing/quilting mugs. So easy when items are handy.

Tall Hick = Wow, those are great bins. Nice job thinking outside of the box. And the crib sheet is a perfect choice to cover them up.

So much has changed here since I was last on and I forgot to 'link' tallchick's post.

Got my 5 big totes of fabric sorted by color, it looks like a fabric explosion in my room. A early morning run to Wally World tomorrow should help. I also have one huge tote full of fabric that will go to a gal who's daughter works at a senior center, she brings in crafty stuff for them to do.
