    DH made me a ruler rack

    I showed him a photo of one and he wanted to try out his new router, so hey, presto! I have a new ruler rack, exactly the size I wanted, absolutely free. It has just enough slots to hold the rulers I use most often, and I keep a couple folders in the back (with a spare ruler behind to hold them up) that have instructions or notes for my current project. I love it! Now I'm thinking quilt rack, thread cone holder...

    "Piecin' a quilt's like livin' a life...The Lord sends us the pieces, but we can cut 'em out and put 'em together pretty much to suit ourselves, and there's a heap more in the cuttin' and the sewin' than there is in the caliker...I've had a heap of comfort all my life making quilts, and now in my old age I wouldn't take a fortune for them."

    Husbands are great for this kind of thing. Mine made me and several quilting friends some of these ruler holders a few years ago. He also made me several thread caddies. I think I'll keep him!

    Nice to have a handy husband. If I showed mine a picture, he'd say so go buy one. So, of course, I would.
