The pictures below are what I have so far, and I have all of my rulers, cutting gadgets, etc. on these. I have the base unit and an upper tier. I've already ordered another base unit because I think this will be my solution for my patterns. I have so many and I can never find what I am looking for.
All of the rulers I have on this are from 4 drawers that I used for my ruler collection, plus 1 drawer I used for all of my rotary cutters. As I was sorting things out to hang up, I came up with enough duplicate sizes of rulers to supply my tool case that I am working on that will be packed and ready to go for any classes or retreats I attend. I never seem to have what I need where I need it.

Whoa, I can't believe how fast time is slipping away. I've been busy with everything but sewing, but that should start to change shortly. The thing that took up the majority of my off time the last couple of months was planning the 2010 Annual Meeting for the Indianapolis Chapter of the American Sewing Guild. We had Mary Mulari as our guest speaker. The meeting was great, everything seemed to go smoothly - and all enjoyed Mary's presentation. I came home with tons of new ideas and the items needed to do some of them. I can't wait to get started, but first I really must clean my sewing room again and put everything away. I don't know how things can get so messed up when I'm not even sewing! The picture is what it should look like, but right now you can't even see any white space on this table or anywhere else. I'm too embarrassed to even snap a picture of it.

Next is the finished dress with the beautiful bride and groom.
I had a blast making it (even though it stressed me out to the max) and learned a lot of new things along the way, including how to install an invisible zipper. In all the years I've been sewing, I've never done one, and can't believe how easy it was; there will be plenty more invisible zipper installations in the future!
