This is my little treasure trove bucket. I keep my favorite (favorite doesn't always mean most used though) things in it. The center area holds thread. It's just where the thread lives. Some escapes. What else do we have here...tape measurer, sponge brushes, exacto blades, buttons and trims, wooden beads, sequins, elastic thread (that I have yet to experiment with), zippers, buckles, clasps, leather trim, wire, snaps, long pins, colored chain...the list goes on. Stuff for miles. Or kilometers.
