Storing Sewing Supplies: Ribbon



There are many facets of my pantry, one of which is sewing supplies. I keep my sewing supplies well-stocked by shopping clearances, sales, using coupons and recycling the fabric in clothing that doesn't fit or that comes from thrift store shopping or hand-me-downs from others.

Storing my sewing supplies so that they are easily accessible can be a challenge so I am continuously looking for ways to do that.  I thought I would share how I store my ribbons...



The jar is a gallon pickle jar that I cleaned up and spray painted the lid black.  I cut the letters out of black adhesive vinyl using a sizzix that I've had for years.  By storing my ribbons in a see through jar I can easily see what I have on hand and it keeps them dust free. By the way all these ribbons were purchased on clearance, many for as little as $.10 per roll.
 
These jars would also work for storing fabric scraps and other sewing notions.
  
How do you store your ribbon/or sewing supplies?

How Do You Use It? Squash


 
In this series we’ve been taking a specific item and talking about how we use the things we grow in our garden.  Thus far we’ve talked about onions, cayenne pepper and potatoes.  In this entry we’re going to talk about how we use squash.

We love squash.  We like to eat it grilled, stewed, fried up with some onions, skewered, roasted and in casseroles to name a few.

I preserve squash by canning it, freezing it and by dehydrating it and turning it into powder that is added to a vegetable powder I make.  I’ve also made squash relish with it.
