Day 3 Needful Things…



I love yardsticks…and have been collecting old carpenters wood tapes for awhile too..I love anything that measures….img_9206 img_9205I did a yardstick wall in my new home sewing room…It turned out awesome…except one thing…I didn’t catch when they were building the house…the placement of the thermostat in my room..but I talked to the HVAC guys and they are going to come back and move it!!!  Then I can finish my wall of “little quits”.img_9204img_9201

I  wanted to be able to move my “little quilts” on and off the wall easily…so I hung them using metal hooks and where the yards sticks meet I added a 1 1/2″ square off cut up yard stick behind them…this creates a rod to hang the hooks…Here is a close-up of what I am trying to explain…



So with this in mind we finally ordered Primitive Gatherings Yard sticks.   Al-f in his workshop is creating NEEDFUL things with them…These ruler boxes are beautiful as well as needful…we can show you…see the following pics…You can order them empty or full…many many choices…img_9168

ruler-tray-1 ruler-boxes


We have 4 sizes of ruler boxes…

1 3/4″x 3 7/8″….Bobbin Holder/3 Valdani Thread holder

1 3/4″x 8″ 6 Valdani Thread Holder

3 1/2″ x 8″ 12 Valdani Thread Holder

10″x 11 3/4″ Project Holder

Of course they can be used for other “things” as well but we had to name them something…

These boxes are hand made by our special Alf in his workshop…so please…we have a bunch made…but we do not know how many you ALL are going to please allow us extra time to make our boxes if we get swamped…The boxes are prices $5, $10, $18 and $34… and  a special price of $60 if you order the set of 4. These are not going out until after Christmas…so keep that in mind.

    My dad….sadly that never can be but he enjoyed the holidays so much when he was with us and they just aren’t the same without him. He was the glue that kept us together.

    I love the boxes…..I see so many possibilities of things that would fit in there and then you could move them room to room as you sewed!

    If I could spend Christmas with anyone, it would be my grandmothers, both gone for many years. But they both spent time with me as a young girl, teaching me to use needle and thread , and needles and yarn to create. I’d love for them to see how I I have grown with the seeds they planted. Miss them every day

    I would spend it with my mom and sister for Living people, of not living would be both my Grandma Rene, and Grandma Honey. Still have all my baking to do tomorrow, should be a fun but messy day. Loved your boxes, especially the project holder one. so super cute. Loved your pictures of how you hang your mini quilts. I have an area I hang seasonal things above the washer and dryer, and it’s not always the same size quilt, so You usually see the screws in the wall, or the dowel which doesn’t look great. I love your idea. Will have to show my husband and make it happen. Love all your little quilts too. Have a Merry Christmas.

    I would love for Santa to drop off some organizational helpers like those cute little ruler boxes… What a sweet idea… For me, I would use them to try and control those misbehaving Valdani threads that have a mind of their own once I take them out of their plastic storage boxes. If I were a Valdani spool, I would feel very special to get to sit inside a PG box… Merry Christmas to all!

    No doubt about it, I would spend it with my dad… gone for 14 years now. He was an ornery cuss and probably had more than one yard stick broke over his backside growing up! : ) I inherited my “spirit” from him and share his enthusiasm for life. He was a hard-working, tough-as-nails man and I miss him every day. Merry Christmas in heaven (or wherever you landed) Dad!

    All of children, grand children, and extended family in a place that has a foot or two of snow for snowman making and sledding. This past Thanksgiving was the first in 20 yrs with our boys and us in the same place, we were missing 2 grandchildren though. My Christmas wish may never happen, but it would be fun to see all of our grand enjoy the snow as much as their dads did growing up.

I have not seen my daughter for Christmas in over 10 yrs. we don’t travel during holidays because we have both of our mom’s with us (95 yrs old) and we don’t want to leave them alone. It makes me sad not to be able to spend the holiday with them, but it warms my heart when they call and tell me what Santa left! That project box is quite awesome!

    How clever are those ruler boxes?! My dad was a master carpenter and cabinet maker, I wonder what happened to his carpenter’s rule? If I could spend Christmas with anyone at all, it would be my mother , who is 95 and doesn’t have a lot of Christmases left. Because of weather , we will wait until spring and hope she continues in good health – and good health and Merry Christmas to you, your family and staff.

    I love your ruler boxes but that comes as no surprise! I love everything you think of to share with us! I would spend Christmas with my grandmothers. They were best friends and shared the passion of quilting…. back in those days I had no interest in quilting other than to play under the frames that hung from the ceiling…. I had tea parties with my baby dolls and it was the safest, most loving place on earth.

    I would love to spend another day with my Grandma Sarah – she died much to young in her 60s – but she is the one that taught me all things sewing – hand – machine – and to be resourceful – I wish I could share with her some of my projects – she would be delighted – I am young (78) and am busy each and every day doing what I love – hand wool sewing and quilting – I have done so many of your projects and have a few more to complete – you are like one of my best friends – thank you for all you do for us – Merry Christmas –

    I would love to spend Christmas with my family that is in WI. My husband and I and our 5 kids live in AZ and we have never had a Christmas with everyone all together.

    I would probably want to spend time with my dad, mom and mom’s friend Harriett. Christmas was always important for mom and dad and we always had people who were alone at Christmas over for supper and also for treats after midnight mass. I love the ruler boxes.

    Now I know what can be done with yard sticks I won at an auction a few years ago. I love the little box/drawer with the valdani thread. Great way to see all the colors.

    I love, love love the idea of the ruler project box. Actually I think each of the boxes is great, but I am partial to the project box. No longer will I stuff my block and supplies in a ziplock bag! I feel like a true quilter now–product is soooo important!

    Those boxes are just adorable! So very cute-and useful too!
    I would like to have another Christmas with loved ones who are no longer with us.

    If I could spend Christmas with anyone it would actually be 4 anyones – all 4 of my children under one roof! Oh and my daughter in law and grandson. That sounds like 6 people but it is actually just one family!!!

    My Christmas Day is not complete without my grand kids. I hate having to move Holidays to work around everyone’s schedules. Life used to be so much simpler. I love the boxes made with yard sticks, how cool is that!

    If I could spend Christmas with anyone it would be my Mom. It was her favorite season and this will be #9 without her. But she’s with me in my heart and the rest of my family will be here!

    Oh my gosh! I love these boxes! I love spending Christmas with family. My kids especially but it would be fun to have Christmas with grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins. We haven’t done that since my grandma passed away 19 yrs ago.

    If I could spend Christmas with anyone it would be my dad! I met him in 1973, I was 26, we never got to spend any Christmas together or birthdays or Father’s Day. My husband , son and I drove to California from Florida to meet him! One of my most wonderful memories. We did meet each other many times during the course of the next 30 some years till his passing at 92. I was blessed , dad was wonderful and his wife was so kind to me! Merry Christmas to all and a blessed new year.

    The one person I would spend Christmas with once again would be my Mom in Milwaukee who has been gone for several years now. But it seems like yesterday when it was Christmas with Mom, Dad and sis.

    Oh my. Those are fabulous boxes, and it is so cool they show “Primitive Gatherings.” I’m going to spend Christmas Day with my husband–that’s the best! Merry Christmas to you and yours, and thank you for all you do for us quilters.

    Love the boxes. Which one would I pick I pick all of them. The best thing about Christmas is spending it with family and friends.

    Love your small quilt wall. That is such a clever display. My husband and I are blessed to get to spend Christmas with my daughters and son-in-laws. It would be perfect if my son, daughter-in-law and grandkids could join us. They live out in AZ and he is deploying right after Christmas.

    I would love to spend Christmas with my husband who only saw 3 of our 7 wonderful grandchildren.
    You have had some wonderful surprises for us. I will miss them when it’s all over UNTIL next year.

    I’d love to have Christmas once again with my husband who passed away 14 months ago. Then it’d be fun to add our parents and children – just like in the “old” days! Such fond memories —
    I love the ruler boxes. I desperately need more storage!! Such a cute idea – might inspire me to organize my quilt studio!!

    I would love to spend Christmas Day with the Savior of course! After all, it IS His Birthday! Wouldn’t that be the ultimate gift???

    I would like to spend Christmas with my sister, Kathy. She passed 22 years ago at age 42 after a five year battle with cancer. Much too young, but I know you understand that completely. Your ruler boxes are “immeasurably” magnificent, and I would feel like a queen who could “rule” the world, if only I could win one! (puns intended) Merry Christmas to your and yours!

    I would love to spend Christmas with my mom and the rest of my family. Miss my mom so much. I love the ruler boxes and your ruler hanging rods. I have a few old yardsticks that I treasure and maybe they need to be repurposed!

    OMG! The boxes are so cute. Please tell your Elf he or she is doing a great job. I have a feeling your elf will be putting in overtime when the orders start coming in. Would love to win one. Have a wonderful Christmas.

    I LOVE the boxes! You always have such fabulous stuff. I love spending Christmas with my family. However if I could pick anyone it would be my mother. She passed away when I was 8 and the older I get the more I miss her. I have a very good life with a wonderful husband and children and now grandchildren but I would love to have just one day with her.

    I would give anything to be able to spend another Christmas with my grandmother who passed away many years ago. I still miss her terribly.

    Love the idea of hanging the quilts on the yardsticks! Awesome idea! I would love to spend Christmas with all those who are no longer with us and share old memories.
    These yardstick boxes would be great for so many things and I bet even my son would like one. Can’t decide on which size to get.

    I feel so blessed to be able to spend Christmas with all my family. I wish my grandma was still alive to join us. She always had a joke or two to tell :-). She was the one that taught me how to sew and I know she would love to go to the quilt shops shopping for fabric with me.
    Happy Holidays 🎄
