I have subscribed to the Wool Street Journal since it's first edition was published. In a recent issue, Bonnie (the editor) shared how she stores her leftover worms in clear glass jars - sorted by color - so she can always find what she needs - and she asked readers to share what they did with their worms. I snapped a couple pictures of my little chest and sent them off to her - and promptly forgot all about it. Last week I received my new issue of the magazine in the mail and was surprised to find those pictures near the centerfold! How fun! So I thought I'd share them here too. I bought this little chest at the thrift store several years ago for $15.
I think it was designed to store CDs, but the little compartments work perfectly for my color-sorted worms. It sits right near my hooking chair, so I can just lean over and see if there's anything in there that will work for my projects.
A couple months ago I visited my friend Sharon and finally got to see the antique set of drawers that she purchased last summer - she uses this to store her worms - and other supplies. Her's is SO much bigger - and nicer - than mine. I wish I could talk her into a swap! Can you say E-N-V-Y-? LOL
How do YOU store your worms?
