Next is a pic of some new tools for my crazy quilting. As anyone who reads this blog knows by now that I love to crazy quilt. I am always on the lookout for things that will help and ease the process. I found these rulers yesterday and the dollar tree in town, you know the kind where everything in the store is a dollar. Well when I seen these I knew I had to have them for working on seams. I have a set of "hair houdini" part makers that I have used for years. (You know those plastic templates you laid where you wanted the part in your hair to be, then you chose which pattern you wanted and then you just took a rat tail comb and followed the outlines to get a hair part.) Anyhow, when I seen these rulers I just had to add them to my collection and they are well worth the cost. You never know when you will come across something you can actually use in cq, so I always stay on alert for new items that I can use in all my crazy quilting adventures. Here are some closeups of each ruler:
I just love a bargain and especially one that is so useful! And to think I just went in there for some tissue wrapping paper (again used in my cq's for motif transfer). Well back to stitching for me. I have already started another dishcloth, just plain to get more practice before I try and do anything with a pattern. But hey, at least I have finally got it! Also, Megs block arrived on yesterday for the "Anything Goes" Traditional DYB RR over on CQI and I cannot wait to start the stitching. Will post pics of before and after my work on it next week sometime. Until next time Happy Stitching,

And this is the block that Annelies sent to me you should also go visit her here: http://quiltsandsiggies.web-log.nl/quilts_and_siggies go check out her blog. She has some beautiful work also. I spent a lot of time just browsing through both of these blogs. Great eye candy.This is the one that I made Annelies:
I have no idea how this one pic got to the left side. With blogger you never know. Anyhow, I am sewing up more siggies so I will have them ready to swap out. I am so excited about this. And they are so easy to make that you can whip them out in no time at all. I have 25 cut and ready to sew, and that is what I will be doing on tonight. So if anyone who reads this wants to swap siggies with me, leave me a message and I will get back with you.
I have more items to share but blogger is acting up today grrrrrrrrrrr! So I will post again later if I can get it to work correctly. In the meantime happy stitching, and those in the cold try to stay warm and those in the warm think of all those who are freezing!
