I admit to being a ruler junkie. I love rulers, they just make things easier (once I learn how to use them). And I so appreciate that my hubby made this for me. Having the rulers hanging right over my cutting table is so convenient. This is what this corner used to look like:
moved from the quilting room to the dining room. And the huge fax/copy machine is sitting on the file cabinet in the quilting room where I don't have a phone jack. Still able to use for copying, which really is it's main purpose, but if I want to send a fax....... And my cutting table - look at the picture, it actually sits over the edge of the desk. My space between the edge of the desk and the wall was 35". My cutting table is 36". So hubby says," well the cutting table will sit above the desk and an inch won't make a big difference". Well, he's so smart, why didn't I think of that????? So I move the cabinet and that fax and the other machine and..... well, CRAP - now I know why I didn't do this orignally - I'd thought about it, I do remember that much. This is a JoAnn's fold up table and I keep the one side folded down unless I'm cutting garment patterns. So folded down, it kept me from sliding the table in that corner. So out comes my tool box and off comes that fold down section. And if I want to cut out a garment - I'll pull out my 6' folding conference table :-) All this rearranging because my hubby loves me enough to make me another ruler rack. And I do love it so the rearranging was worth it.
And after the rearranging - I finished my granddaughter's quilt top:
Now to go browse the net or magazines and see what else I can come up with for hubby to make :-)
