    Look what DH made for me!

    I finally have a rack to put my big cones on and next to it a lightbox.
    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

    there is a bright light inside the box and a milky glas on top. Its a help to trace a pattern to freezerpaper or fabric for example.

    He's a keeper! I really like that thread rack, better than any others i've seen! Maybe it's the mouth watering spools you have loaded on it! The craftsmanship on that light box looks like a professional did it.

    Oh, Granny, what a wonderful birthday! The thread holder is beautiful and what a blessing to have the light box as well. Breakfast and an updated computer...wow...you really rate, don't you? I would say he is a keeper for sure. Love the natural wood on your wall and the wonderful photos of children - looks like a lovely environment in which to work. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

    Oh, my goodness! You are so lucky to have that man around, and I can see he even gave you permission to go shopping! (blank spindles for more thread! lol)
    Hope you have / had a very Happy Birthday!

    thank you all so much for the birthday wishes and for all comenting on the woodwork of the wall here a full view pic of that corner of my sewing room. The black forest kuckucks watch is a family treasure (DH side!!!!!!) and nobody wanted it in another room, thats why it hangs there. Turned off by the way, it makes a hell of a kuckuck every quarter hour.............
