I use a Quilter's Cut 'n Press for mine. I got this tip from Linda Franz of Inklingo. I put the cutting side down, and use the pressing side. I can stick my pins and needles into it. On a larger pin I put the loop of the handle of my applique scissors. My needle threader rests nicely too. Thread spools and thimbles can rest on larger pins too.
This is a Dutch Treat bock I'm working on. But if hand-piecing, the fabric pieces can be laid out on the surface in order and won't move around.
When I get up it's easy to just move the whole thing and set it on a flat surface. Everything stays in place, ready to pick up when I'm ready.
Hope all you blog-hoppers find some time to stitch today.
