It was also the day to pick up entries for the fair. I couldn't even remember what I had entered. I almost left behind the jewelry. They took very good care of my shawl and I can't wait to wear it out. A nice woman at the fair said she thought it was my most creative year! Very flattering. I showed her how the book came apart and she like it. She really loved the sewing tool box I made. She was surprised when she opened it up.

The lid holds the sewing box together. I like the sudden burst of color and the easy access when it is open. It includes a pretty pincushion in the center. The box also has pockets and a ribbon to hold scissors. It was made with leftover book board from binding books. So it was made as large as the smallest board. I had seen this in a book and just made it up as I went. There used to be kits with the boards cut. The lid was the hardest part. They also took special care of my tiny pincushion and had it under glass.
