That's a spool holder, a bobbin holder and a ruler to use with a rotary pad and cutter. The pad was in the stuff I got recently from my mother so I picked up a cutter to try it out. I am a convert! What an easy way to get straight cuts in fabric. Why did I not know about this?
Next, J's been out in his shed every day after work, finding places for all of his things. He declared it photo ready this week, and it really looks good. Of course, the next day, I went into 'my' shed and found all the stuff he didn't have room for! We'll work on that next.
When I sent these to my family, my brother joked that J has too much time on his hands if his workshop is that neat. First, J has just figured out where each set of tools were going, so it is freshly set up, and second, J says "There is a place for everything and everything is in it's place". I must say he is pretty persnickety about his tools, as am I about my sewing room.
Lastly, (no picture) yesterday when we were in the kitchen, I looked out to see the hens wandering and said 'That damn hen is on the other side of the road!"
J plaintively asked "Why did she cross the road?"
Then we both laughed like fools.
It's a good thing we found each other.
