Year End Wrap-Up

This is it, my 2015 year-end-wrap-up, three days late. I had to show my latest addition to the stash closet, the third and final ruler board. Mr. Goodneedle made it for me for Christmas. It joins these two, already installed.
This third one is the final one only because I'm out of real estate on the walls in the closet! My husband would like to think it's because I am done buying specialty rulers; well, if the truth were known, that is probably something that I should think about doing... but, until then, there's still room for a few more! The rest of this post is a show and tell of random dowloaded photos that, basically, speak for themselves but I'll add a few brief explanations.
After the Christmas pillowcases came off the grandchildren's pillows 
they had to be replaced... out with the Santas and reindeer and in with some winter fun motifs!
I ordered this book which arrived too late to have some sewing fun with the little ones this year...
bit that's okay, we'll start early this year and create some ornaments together, this is an adorable resource; I recommend it.
I am wearing this pin proudly, the precious gift from a dear friend who knows me well...
proclaiming me to be the queen of ironing; I can own that!
This is another Christmas gift, from my husband. Too bad it wasn't cool enough to wear it at the time! 
Notice the temperature on the instrument panel of my daughter's car. This was on Christmas eve at 5 PM! Actually, the temperature rose to an unbelievable 80 degrees before we arrived at church that evening! I was reminded by those temperatures and the humidity level of a Christmas eve twenty years earlier... when we lived in Puerto Rico! North Carolina, Christmas 2015, felt exactly like the Carribbean. 
 
I stitched out some samples this week for altar linens, something new to me; I loved the results.
That's it: a wrap-up of randomness. All in all it's been a good year... and on we go, it's all good.
Welcome 2016 ~ I'm ready!
Life is Good!

You had me worried with that remark about it being the "final" board for new rulers. YOu know they are just going to keep making newer and better rulers and we will need them! And now that we're using them, it's all good!!! It's all GOOD!!!!

What a wonderful way to display your rulers. They are visible and easy to access. More of mine might get used if I did the same, but I don't have the real estate to even put up one such board.
You are such a good Grandma to keep the pillows well-clothed. Do I sense some Valentine pillowcases to come? : )
My goodness, you folks have had it so warm--while we don't even reach freezing as our high for the day. DH and I took a walk a couple of days ago at the warmest time of the day and it was only 7 degrees. Yikes! We actually got up to 25 degrees today. Balmy.

How do you attach the rulers to the board?

I hope you don't mind that I "copied" the photos of your ruler boards and put them in an e-mail to my hubby with the words "HINT" ... LOL I do have the real estate in my sewing room for at least one or two of those ... what an excellent idea!! I couldn't see how what type of hook/clip he used to hold the rulers on the boards but we should be able to figure that out. Your altar linens are beautiful ... what a rewarding project. Happy New Year to you and ALL your family ... thank you for sharing a window into your life ... it is much appreciated and enjoyed! God bless! Linda
