I made it this morning but have yet to try it out since I'm still working on the second bobbin of the purple stuff you can see in the pic.  I can't wait to finish the second bobbin so I can give this thing a try.  I was looking around the internets to buy a tensioned lazy kate, which would have cost me about $40 bucks.  This one cost me about a dollar to make, can't beat that!  I did put the post up today on my blog....
