    How I store my quilting templates

    I was in the local Target the other day and wandered through their housewares section. Spotted this metal spice rack and it hit me that this was what I was looking for to store my quilting templates so I could see what I have and find it easily. I've shown pictures of the label and then the rack in place with my templates in the slots. I did find that they slipped on the shelf so I cut a piece of non-skid shelf liner and it works perfectly. Smaller templates go in front and don't get lost in the shuffle with all the bigger pieces.

        I store my "Fat Cats" ruler in the cover too. I think that ruler will also make dresden plates, I tried to find the directions on the website, but if I remember correctly, I never did find them. Perhaps I wasn't diligent enough. I have heard that you can make tumblers with them too!

        Nice job on the storage idea!

                Yes, (hanging head in shame) the package is UNopened . . . shame, shame, shame. In my defense (everyone has an excuse) I just bought it last Friday afternoon . . . and I've been busy . . . how, I don't know. I have nothing to show for my busy-ness but a broader bottom . . .

                        I second that, Blondie! Great idea! Mine are in a basket and are hard to see or find. Thanks Sandy!

                            The back door is unlocked (can't leave it open in this weather) and, as we all know, back door guests are the best. I've got a pot of chili on if you are up to something hot . . . and spicy . . .

                            I'm really not lucky though - I'm nuts and probably spend more time organizing and amassing notions and accessories than I do in creating . . .

                            There's also coffee or tea available when you come in the back door. I'll leave a cup out for you.
