    Great that you have the ruler&cutter combo. It is a little cumbersome but so what, it works great. The sandpaper yes but I don't think you want to use the double stick tape. It is going to stick to your fabric. The sandpaper can go on your fabric and it will not hurt it. I don't think so but give it a try. I won't last long (tape) sticky side down. But def put on the sticky sandpaper. :D

    Thanks again Donna, hope I didn't wake you up. My first chance to get to the computer today. Hubby helped me clean the family room up. Until last week my grown son who was severely injured in an auto accident lived in there. What a mess. You know how that is. I did take a little time to put a block together and do a little quilting.

    I have a ruler with the lip but I seldom use it. I prefer the lipless 6X24" but I also put the clear cling grip plastic on the bottom of all my rulers/templates so they are not slipping. Doesn't alway keep my cutter for going awry though. :oops:

    " But the sandpaper is great and I just put a little bit at each end and in the middle. :D And I have one of those suction things to hold the ruler, but it is in the package, I have never used it and was going to sell it, just keep forgetting. I have never cut my fingers so I figure why have to get use to something else. I don't know where or why I have it. :roll: [/quote]

    Just be careful now, everytime I say " I have never..." I then do it, regretting my boasting!!!! :cry: :? :oops:

    Still laughing about the dent puller - you had us all going!

    Was reading through the messages and on the adverts at the end of each page was a panel beater offering to beat the dents out of cars! laughed even more.

    On the next page there was a suction ad that sounded like it was for unplugging baths and basins!

    Ok its late here and my mind is on a funny track!

    At a course I went to, one of the ladies there was a hand therapist and she talked about carpel tunnel and joint problems in quilters hands. With the ruler she said you should use the flat hand to hold the ruler and not just your fingers. Not only will this give you a better press on the ruler but will also help prevent damage to your thumb joint and the inside wrist joint as well.

    Never tried the suction things but I have seen a cupboard handle screwed into a ruler (holes were drilled) and the lady swore by it.
