New Tackle Box for Laura!

 

 

 


Most people would wonder why in the world does Laura need a tackle box as she never goes fishing. Those of you in my tatting world know exactly why! I saw this last weekend in our brand new Bass Pro Shop very reasonably priced. I waited a week to see if I really wanted it and, obviously, I did. The four trays can stand on end of on their bottoms. They are divided long ways and have partitions to set more dividers as needed. I know you can buy boxes like this several places, but not four of them together in a nice bag like this one. It has a shoulder strap and compartments on each end as well.

This will be my "mobile tatting cabinet." Now I get to see how much stuff I can fit in there.

If you don't have a Bass Pro Shop, I bet you could find one on line!

Wow, that is perfect for you !! They opened a Bass Pro here in Las Vegas a few years ago, and what a great store !! You could spend hours in there it is so big. I LOVE your gorgeous tree !! :) Hope you are having a wonderful Christmas Season !! :)

Thank you Miss Rhea. I am so glad you like my tree. I am so happy and pleased by it. It really cheers me up. I wish I could share it with everyone. Bass Pro is awesome, except for the taxidermy. That kind of bothers me. I hope you are feeling good and having a wonderful Christmas Season yourself!

Hi Laura,
I have some containers that look a whole lot like yours (made by Artbin) and I just love them. Mine doesn't have the nifty holder for them though. It looks like a well organized system ya got going there!

Hi Sy. I think I am going to enjoy it. You need to get a holder for yours!
Hi Sherry. Do you think I need to tat some fish in bright colors to put on the outside? LOL

Wow! You totally scored! I love my fishing tackle box, LOL! Whenever I would take it to my lace guild meeting my neighbor would ask me, "going fishing?" and I would reply, "no, I'm going to a lace guild meeting!". I loved the perpelexed look he got on his face, LOL!

Hmmm... a new way to tackle your tatting projects! Can't wait to see how you use it!

Marty said...

Way nifty! That's just what I need for those weekends I go visit my folks. It would be great to carry a "subset of my stuff" with me. I wonder if Cabela's would have such a thing?
You need to have yours so you can make more of those snowflakes for your beautiful rainbow tree. That's so very pretty!

A great idea, Laura!

Tattycat said...

Thank you TattingChic. I'll have to drop by and pick it up!
Thanks Bonnie. I just wanted to share the idea with anyone else who might want/need one!

Tackle boxes are amazing for organizing your tatting to travel around with. When I get home I will take some pictures of mine and post them. I would be lost without my tackle box. Your Rainbow Tree is amazing and is sure to put a smile on the faces of those who see it.

Tattycat said...

Thank you Clyde. I do hope my tree is bringing smiles to those who see it. I am excited about my tatting box. I just know it will be very useful. I'd love to see pictures of the one you use. I have a great big one that I use for my woodcarving tools.

Oh, it looks like the perfect tatting bag.
Oh yes, some tatted fish would look great on it.
I have better research those fishing tackle boxes here one day soon to see what we have got.
