I Rediscover the Yard Stick

That lean little one inch wide, 36 inches long piece of wood comes in handy when you cut out multiple pieces of rectangular fabric. Rather than pinning and cutting, using a yardstick to measure out several pockets is so much faster. When I was a kid my parents would get yardsticks for random things, like filling the car with gas ("We go the extra yard!") buying a car ("We go the extra yard!"), buying lumber ("The best lumber yard!") and buying a couch (don't know what that meant. We had loads of them hanging around. I am glad I kept their Montgomery Wards yardstick. I don't think anyone ever got a spanking with that one.
