I'll never lose my favorite noter and pick again!

I usually keep a few picks in the watch pocket of my jeans and carry a pick in my wallet. I have a little zippered pouch that has a ring on it to carry keys. I attached a small carabiner through the ring and attach it a belt loop on my jeans, slacks or shorts. That works well enough for me and will hold a noter or two as well as picks.

OK - Golden rule No1: NEVER become attached to a favourite noter of pick because you will certainly break, loose or wear them out !

Warning: Do not apply this rule to spouses, partners, or sweethearts!

Love the pix, Robin...very descriptive!

I used to keep my picks and noters with my keys or my glasses - but because I can never find my keys or glasses I could never everfind my picks or noters 102.gif

So now I have them stashed in totally random places all around the house, so when I'm looking for mygloves or hats I can find picks and noters instead and forget why I wanted to out in the first place and just pick up a dulcimer and play that (much to the chagrin of my better half Frown.gif )

But I do have the ultimate place to store my favourite picks and noters and I ALWAYS know exactly where they are Grin.gif I store my favourite quill picks here...

...on the local Black Backed Gulls. 113.gif

And I store my favourite noters here....

So now I never loose them 36.gif

(I do like the look of those little bags though and have a couple of those little ethnic purses from Nepal with picks and noters in them 3.gif )

Easy to make -- I used a picture hanging loop screwed into the end of my noter. The first thing I thought when I finished making mine was "cat toy!" (as long as they give it back...)

I had a noter with a leather lanyard. I liked it because I could drop it and play with my fingers then swing it back up again. Unfortunately my dog thought it was a chew toy one night. I'm ordering another one this week LOL.

Thanks, Ken - my 18thcentury reenacting knowledge came in handy -- women used to put their sewing supplies on chords or chains and hang them from their apron waistbands on a chatelaine. I thought, this would work for my dulcimer tools as well (no apron needed Smile.gif ). I am using another old-style sewing device to hold my picks -- it was used for holding thimbles and other small sewing tools, not sure of the original name but I call it a thimble mouse (now a pick mouse). I made the one below out of plastic tops covered in cotton material -- the plastic give it a "spring action" 523_forums.jpg?width=721 524_forums.jpg?width=721

Seems like I spend half my time looking for my noter and pick so I came up with a solution. Now when I jump up to get the phone or the door, I will find my noter and pick dangling from my wrists! Yeah maybe a little silly but it does work! So far it does not seem to interfere with playing or restrict movemment. I can also hang them from my music stand.
