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!
