    Been sewing for years but this is my first attempt at quilting. Tired of all my thread spools getting messed up so I asked my Dad to make a spool holder. He did a great job, he made it out of cedar and it holds 60 spools. Now I can easily find the color I need. He also made me this ruler holder.

    Thank you, i know he does a great job, and couldn't handle parting with tons of money for a cheap looking piece i knew i would hate hanging up. They are a lot of work to make. He likes making stuff but has a really hard time selling things for money. He hates taking peoples money.

    I'm sure they are alrady treasures to you, but as years go by they will be even more specia...l because your Daddy made them just for you. So special! I know you will enjoy them for many years to come.
