Traveling kit

I took an old tea tin and put together a traveling kit. All I keep in here are a spool of thread, needles, scissors, and paper hexagons pinned to fabric. I can carry this tin with me on trips (I recently took it with me on vacation) or even on the bus to and from work. With this kit, all I do is baste the hexagons together. This is a real time saver, then in the evenings while watching tv, I have all the hexagons made and can whip stitch them together. The stack you see on the right in the picture is completed hexagons. I then string them together with a single thread through the center. This keeps all the hexagons for a single flower together, 6 seer suckers with a center.
