My new ribbon holder

I have finally gotten back into the swing of things and this is my new ribbon rack that Al made for me. It will hold most of my ribbon and now he is making another one for all my spools of beads that need a deeper unit to hold them. I am hoping they are the same size as my Christmas ribbons as I have been collecting ribbon every year after clearance or 50% to go with my ribbons I have already. That way in case they get old or dirty, I can change them out. I saw a smaller version of this on e-bay, but I wanted mine to cover the inside of the door. It will free up drawers to put my lace in, unless I can think of a good way to display it without it getting soiled. I am making a little straight panel to hang in front of the ribbon when not in use. I can roll it up and when finished, drop it down. He also put some long shelves over my windows to put things that I like and things that aren't used on a daily basis, but you can't see that yet, as I am looking for valances for under them. Hope you like my new organizer. Love and Hugs, Pat

Thanks Knit and Nettie, I do have to brag a little---he is always there to make things for me. He should have finished college because I have no doubts that he would have been a great designer. I kept the drawing he did of how I wanted my back garden to look. Love Ya both, Pat

Hello Pat, Wow, What a nice job Al did on your ribbon holder. That is what Brandy needs:) You are getting so organized! Hope you have dried out some and getting your fence fixed. The 100 people from Beaumont have gone home today. Not sure what they are going to find, I feel so sorry for them. God Bless you for standing up for the pregnant lady. I would have been crying too. Take care. Hugs Mary:)

Thanks everyone. Now I get a deeper one for all the bead trims I have on rolls, but I just want holes this time for the dowels because it was too difficut painint in those grooves. Love and Hugs, Pat
