Boohoo! In a moment of machine quilting frenzy, I inadvertently swept my favourite knick-knack container onto the floor, breaking the lid hinge in the process. I’ve purchased a replacement container but it’s just not the same. To demonstrate my point, I bring to you Exhibit One:
In the foreground, you can see my old container, complete with:
- a handy long compartment for marking tools, scissors and pens; and
- another handy compartment big enough to hold spare rotary cutter blades and a container of glass head pins.
At the back is its lesser cousin. All small rectangular compartments and only one “big” compartment that cannot fit scissors, pencils, blades or pins. Woe is me.
Postscript: In case you’re wondering, this is my magic container that I take to workshops with me. Hence the panadol, bandaids and cotton buds…
