It was time.............

Warning:  You may find the image below  graphic and disturbing.  If you are a quilter / sewer / crafter, you may want to skip this post. I don't even know if I should be doing this. I mean after you see this I may be shunned from the blogging world of quilting and sewing forever. I'm sure I'll lose all my coveted followers but it's time you all saw.





Well here it is.........................the sewing ruler I've been using since, well................since as far back as I  can remember.  It's probably as old as me.  I inherited it from my mom when she could no longer stand to use it.



But the other day I just could not stand to use it one second longer.  I forked out $23.99 for this baby and can I just say it's the best money I've ever spent (besides for epidurals).  Isn't she just the loveliest piece of plastic/fiberglass  you've ever seen in your life.


Now to help you forget the picture you just saw I thought I'd show you some pretty pictures.  I can't take credit for these.  I snapped a picture of these cute little creations the other day when my friend Cami and I were working on this quilt.

This is Cami's little miniature version of  the raw edges quilt we made.  I think it's so cute, it would make the cutest little table topper.  She should probably just give it to me since she already has this.....................




adorable table runner that she made.   I love the colors she used, and the ric rac and of course the cute little cherries on the sides that I wish I would have gotten a close-up picture of.  Notice the scrappy binding, I've never made a quilt with a scrappy binding before, but definitely want to try it.



I'm so excited.  I finally got my hands on some of this stuff.  I Google it every once in a while hoping that some crazy person out there is trying to sell theirs.  I was lucky, I found a quilt shop that had some charm packs.  I think I'll be making a new table topper.  I still love the one I'm currently using, but after having it for three years, I've finally decided it's a little Christmasey!  I'm a little slow!

It did look a little vintage! Love your quilts and that table runner is adorable. Mimi

Your old one was definitely getting hard to read. Better that you got the new one. You will love it.

That table runner is really cute and so is the table topper!

We're taught to be frugal aren't we? I think it definitely served the measure of it's creation and it was time to retire it. The new one must be such a joy to work with! I have one similar to it and I love it. Thanks for sharing the other projects. I'm looking forward to seeing your new table topper too.

You should have said that my sister ruined that ruler cutting wall paper. She put duct tape on the back so it wouldn't slide around on the wall paper while she was cutting it. Man, give your poor sweet Mom some brain points would ya?
