All the templates I made out of plastic and cardboard, necessary for certain patterns, cannot be used infinitely. And furthermore they are not very pratical. Of course I have a few good standard rulers. Recently I got three little templates from Marti Michell. Does anybody of you work with them?
Heirlom Creations vorgestellt wurde. Er hat mich neugierig gemacht. Innerhalb einer Woche war er aus den USA da. Ich kann es kaum erwarten damit zu arbeiten.....
Lately I saw at Heirlom Creations the so called "Ruler of the Month". I was curious to see what kind of pattern one can make with this Lazy Angel ruler. Within a week it arrived from the USA. I can hardly wait to use it.....
...as there are a lot of scraps in my boxes and I really want to finally empty one.
Annemarie's Nine-Patch-Challenge fertig geworden. Gerade noch rechtzeitig vor der Deadline ;-) !
But my UFO's still have priority. I want/have to stick to my intention not to start a new project when the "old" ones aren't finished ;-) ! However, my final quilting of the various projects make slow progress. By the way I just finished another quilt for Annemarie's Nine-Patch-Challenge whose deadline is September 1st.

When being a bit absent-minded, it may happen that little pouches for baby-soothers (the ones in red) do not come out identically and in the same form although they had the same cutting....
Later on when checking out other sizes I of course paid more attention to what I was doing. So, I now could go into production....if I had to ;-) !!
Having already sewn the same last year and still having some of the fabric left, it was quite evident that I could also make a second pair of potholders as a contribution to Annemarie's Nine-Patch Challenge.
Actually being immobile due to a little foot surgery, however I now have time to sew up all the threads of the recently finished baby quilts.
Und wenn dann der Briefträger noch mit einer Sendung Stoff (für einmal ausnahmsweise in Form von Jelly Rolls) kommt, hat die neue Woche ganz besonders gut angefangen :-) !!
P.S. Uebrigens, PIF (Pay it forward) ist immer noch offen (siehe letzter Beitrag).
And finally when the postman rings and brings some new fabrics (for once in the form of jelly rolls), then the beginning of the new week is perfect.
P.S. By the way, PIF (Pay it forward) is still open (see my last post).
