    Just wish I had made it larger.
    My specailty rulers are in a desk top letter holder on a shelf.
    It is under the hanging fabrics, kinda hard to see.
    By the way Im 72 yrs old and single so had to hang it myself. If I can do it anybody can.
    What a great job you have done Rose Marie. I wish you lived near me..... I am always so BAD at putting things back. I also LOVE pegboard !!! I hang all my stemcils on it too. You can find some pieces at Home Depot in their Scrap bin for pennies on the dollar. That is where I got all mine and other goodies until I had to stop driving....

    I keep mine in my quilter's "Pocketful of Rulers" bag I made in a class last year.

    Inside are various pockets for the various ruler sizes plus three pockets on the front.

    I use the bottom row of my pegboard, mainly because I use the upper pegs for my embroidery threads..... each color has its own row ranged from light to dark shades. Also hang my scissors and cutting wheels on the pegs. When I put it up, I nailed 2 strips of wood on the wall, then put the peg board on top so that the pegs go in easily. My biggest problem is storing stencils........ any ideas?

    You can buy metal shower curtain rings and thread nthem thru the holes and hang them up.
