I made my own Mother's Day gift

My oldest has been planning since March to make a special box to hold my sewing supplies...after much discussion and several trips to the craft store she decided on an unfinished pine box with a hinged lid. It's in my favorite color, embellished with little bobbins:
I had a brainstorm of using it to organize my tangled mess of bobbins using a 3/8 inch dowel (1.5 inch lengths). I was halfway through drilling when I realized I should have some sort of barrier between the box and my hardwood floors. Ordinary tacky glue was the adhesive.
And here she is!
I might add a small notch on each dowel to anchor the loose threads. Here are some sweet refrigerator magnets from my other sweetie!
Happy Mother's Day to everyone!

Well, okay, so you made *part* of your own mother's day gift. :o) Way to get handy with the drill and dowels! I have an icky plastic bobbin case...something handmade would definitely be more fun. Your girls are sweet and thoughtful. :o)
