    Default My Ruler Storage Solution!

    I have been trying to find a way to store my rulers that would work well for me. My cutting table is a drop leaf style & I was just putting the rulers on the floor underneath. The lady that owned our LQS mentioned a Command hook that they used to hang quilts from the ceiling that might work. I didn't know they had Command hooks with a swivel hook! So I got a couple of packs and mounted them on the underside of my cutting table (on the center section). WooHoo.....it works! Now my rulers will be hanging and out of the way when I'm not using them. The ones I use the most are hung at the front. I also hung my quilting hoop and an extra cutting mat.

    So happy to have a solution! Here's a few pictures. Maybe this idea will help someone else.

    I want to go out right now and buy some! But wait, it's 10:30 pm and the store's closed. This is a great idea. What weight limit are your hooks?

    I got some of those last week at Hobby Lobby for something else. They were in the Christmas decoration section and 50% off!

    My hoops have been driving me crazy - I might give it a whirl.
