    I use my lightbox to position my applique pieces on my background fabric. I only have a small one so have to use it in quarters on my big blocks! You have a keeper....but if he gets too much for you, send him my way

    I love the rainbow of colours on your thread rack. Sounds like you have a pretty awesome DH!

    Considering the fact that DH`s profession is not even close to any craftmanship he did a very good job! And suffers from blisters on both hands.......:-)
    He also made breakfast for me and since he was in my sewing room to put the rack on the wall he updated my Computer - it is really fast again!
    A very happy Birthday for me lol

    that thread holder is just wonderful. I love my light box too. I use it a lot for paper piecing.
    SMILE- it will make everyone wonder what you are up to.
    Stay strong and keep looking up.

    Belated Happy Birthday greetings to you, Granny59!
    WOW ... what a wonderful job MrG59 did ... and I believe he made your quilting table extension too, didn't he?

    Always having problems buying the thread I "want" and having to go with another option, I'm totally drooling at your rainbow wall. Me-thinks I know where it came from! The other day when I was buying some, I was kidding them that I was going to start buying my thread first ........ before I chose fabrics to make a quilt!!

    This birthday wish is late but I hope you had a wonderful day. Your thread rack and light box are just beautiful. I noted with interest that you are in Switzerland. My son, DDIL, and only grandchild are in Zurich and I have been to visit them several times. I love it because it is very similar in appearance to Oregon where I live. And the chocolate is to die for!
