A very nice surprise arrival indeed. An unwanted, unloved item in need of a new home found its way to my doorstep yesterday. I can keep my threads and pins and scissors tidy beside the sofa, out of reach of Team Tabby, who do like a hank of thread as a playmate- they sneak up silently, reach out a tentative paw, hook them down from the table/sofa and race off with them...not any more! And look- it has a handle, it can travel- it can follow me and my sewing to a spot in the sunshine during the day, back to beside the sofa in the evening. Perfect!
