    My wife has started on "Christmas card production."
    These are just for family and friends, but it sort of spreads across the lounge, with cards in various stages of completion, mostly on the floor or settee.
    This year she decided to be a bit better organised.
    I bought her this earlier in the year, to keep some of her stuff in.

    This is the latest edition. It's solidly made, all white painted steel and has six clip-on plastic canisters for tools, pens, tubes of glue etc. At around forty quid, I thought it good value.

    So no more stuff on the floor (apart from that magizine she threw at the french widows to scare off a wood pigeon on the patio).

    It compliments the little table she uses when she works from this chair.

    I think I'll show this to my husband in the hope he thinks something similar would be perfect for me!!

    I think that might just be a sign that someone HOPES summer is almost over. ;)

    Amazing! My daughter in law makes cards too, always a treat to get one.
    Great cart, I have one for my Cricut supplies. Now there's something your wife needs for card making!

    There's the difference, my wife won't use any machines other than a guillotine, she likes to cut everything out by hand she has all sorts of scissors right down to really tiny ones. It's about keeping her fingers working despite the MS.

    "Apparently" you can "accessorise" this cart, as these clip-on hooks arrived yesterday.

    I can imagine the youngest grandchildren would fancy this cart, as they could play "trolley dollies" with it.
