HUBBY'S NEW TOY

Now Hubby has lots of new activities and plenty of time at home. Since he has got a new toy, a gift from me on his 55th birthday and in conjunction of his retirement on the 6th of March recently, he started to list out the things to do with his new baby, THIS.............

He was busy doing this framed table top to house his collection of penknives when I showed him a printed picture of an accessory for my sewing room.




I went in, back to my corner to continue doing some sewing and later that day he gave THIS......
a ruler/templates holder from local 'keruing' timber. Heavy and very durable!

Oh my, you really made my day...... thanks Dia.....

This cost about $10-20 on eBay, but it cost us nothing.... Hubby collected what was scattered around us......patched and put it back to life.... it enlightened and returned us the true bonding of love and care............

Wait, after 10 years of doing patchworks and quilting I have only two pieces of cutting ruler and no templates?????..... So what should I slot in to fill up the empty grooves.... :D

Such a clever husband! I need one of those holders -- my friend bought one that hangs on the wall and she loves it -- perhaps I will have to get one, too!

Anita, it is quite useful for those who have lots of cutting rulers and templates.... I have those two pieces only.... :)
