Well, this made it better

I've been doing a lot of hand sewing lately.  I find it much more relaxing and fulfilling.  The Dr and I were going on a small road trip and I decided to bring some along with me.  Well, I was finding it hard to work on my sewing and keeping the thread, scissors, needles, and other parts together in the car where I could easily grab it.

I realized that I needed a tray, but it couldn't be any tray.  Then I remember a set of trays that I picked up at Goodwill. I got 2 of the smaller trays for $.99 each and the bigger one for $1.99.  I was already using the bigger one for office supplies so I grabbed one of the smaller ones, measure it and then grabbed the supplies that I needed...Yes, we had pizza for dinner.......

I decided to paint it a nice teal color and then I covered a piece of cardboard with pink flannel.   I was going to use felt, but then I found this piece in the remnant bin of W-mart and the two ladies near the fabric dept. didn't look like they wanted to cut fabric, so this had to do... 

I love how it turned out!!!  The pink is perfect.  Here it is in use on our way to visit our families.  It was prefect and just what I needed to keep everything organized and within reach. The only thing missing was a pin cushion.  That is next.

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving with their families.
