Ready To Roll!

I am so excited to show you the new place that my Accuquilt Die Cutter calls home... the stash closet! Since Christmas it had taken up residence on top of one of my sewing machine tables, this was only a temporary measure; the Studio model isn't the "Go!" (portable) and was too heavy for me to move around the room when I needed space at the machine. I thought about shopping for a rolling cart and mentioned that to my husband, one that would allow me to move the cutter in and out of the closet as needed. My resident woodworker took some measurements and went about building me something much nicer than a rolling cart, he had the vision of creating a custom cabinet with drop leaves for work space and three drawers (plus a cubby) for storage; it is perfect! (I snapped this photo, above, before the drawers were completed.) Here it is, below; in all of its glory, I have created a photo collage highlighting the cabinet's features. This beauty  rolls smoothly on casters so that I can use it wherever I would like and then roll it back into the closet at the end of the day.

Life is Good!

My husband is a good painter. That is his only craft. Do you loan yours out for projects like that? LOL That cart is so nice!

Love it ... I have the Accuquilt Go and would love to have a cart to have it at easy access ... might have to talk with my "carpenter" ;-)

Aren't you the lucky woman?!? That is so handy/smart/efficient/beautiful--and not necessarily in that order. Kudos to DH! : )
Oh, I love the photo on your sidebar of Gregory rolling the cars along the heart-shaped track framing his sister. Don't know how long it has been there, but I just noticed it.

Wow - that's PERFECT! How blessed you are to have a hubby who's so talented.

I'm trying to talk myself into buying an Accuquilt cutter. I can assure you that I won't have such a wonderful cart for me (my hubby is not a wood worker).

Beautiful! Having a resident woodworker who does such exquisite work is surely a joy. I've no doubt it makes using the cutter a happy thing.

I wonder how many ladies will be sending this post to their other halves saying, "SEE what Mr Goodneedle does for Mrs Goodneedle? Now here's my revised 'Honey Do' List..." He is a star, Mr Goodneedle, and you two are an inspiration to us all. Big hugs to you both! xx
