And speaking of rulers…

022

Take a simple, inexpensive see-thru plastic wall file from Staples

026

Add a collection of quilting rulers

002

And get instant organization!  Neat and tidy.

009 - Copy

I’m surprised at how well they all fit and how easy it is to see and retrieve the rulers while I’m working.  I love it!!

Oh, and do you like my new thread cabinet?  It’s my very early birthday gift from Mr. Sunshine.  I got this awesome idea from Elizabeth at Oh Franson.  You know how sometimes things just jump out and click with you…this was one of those times. And another problem solved.  Thanks Elizabeth.

What an awesome solution for storing rulers. I could see storing patterns or books in there as well. The thread cabinet is cool as well.

cool gadget and yes, I do like that thread cabinet very much especially the way you grouped the thread by color.

What a fantastic idea!!! I hope I can find one here in Australia because I definately need to organise my rulers - at the moment, they just lean against my cutting table on the floor.

Annie said...

I was pleased to come across your blog while browsing. Fantastic to find your idea which is something I did years ago with my rulers. Now others can store their rulers neatly too.
