Day 11….Christmas is coming fast….hope you have made your list….every year Nick makes me go through every William-Sonoma, Sundance, Athleta ect. catalog and pick everything I like……so he can surprise me…funny…right? But at least I get what I like and not a real surprise!!! I’m not good at faking that I like something…I know that sounds bad but when you have been married for 15 years he should know what I would like…and I guess he does…he asks me….lol…can you tell I am feeling a little better?
Now on to the real needful things…for this next one you are going to say…I have all the rulers I need I have my 6×24 or a 12×12….but… as I was cutting my project for my latest quilt with the new Creative Grid rulers that I have outfitted my new studio with, it was amazing … I can’t tell you what a huge difference these new updated Creative Grid rulers made…the best part? They have the 1/2″ marking in bold black…now this is really what we are cutting the most is 2 1/2″ or 4 1/2″ and so on…because of our half inch seam allowances…this bold black make this so much more recognizable and easy to find the right 1/2″. Did I mention I recently got my first pair of no line bifocals????…but anyway…. I was elated and now want to replace every ruler I own, (except my little 4×8 omni) with this new updated version…did you know you can get a square ruler in every size square from 2 1/2- 12 1/2? I actually use my 20 1/2″ ruler a lot too…but you may want to start slowly when your budget allows to upgrade your rulers….As I was inspecting my old rulers I noticed the lines are starting to fade, the edges are nicked up a bit…so I can see getting a few new rulers….You want to check these out!!!
I think you can get these rulers at any quilt shop…but…If you want to add them to your list from Primitive Gatherings we have them on sale for you…I have listed and added the most common rulers I use in my quilting as I do not think you need a square in every size! These are my favorites…6 1/2 and 12 1/2″ squares and 6 1/2″x 12 1/2″ and 8 1/2″x 24 1/2″ rectangles. Click here to shop for Rulers

Lisa, get better soon!! The Seam-Fix looks great. The minis would be excellent as favors for the Christmas meeting of my quilting group, but we meet next Tuesday and I don’t think even Santa could get them here fast enough. BTW, I’ve been using tweezers to remove those threads and sometimes it can be a pain. I enjoy your Needful Things postings very much.
Sue send me your address details to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be sending you a Floral Gatherings Layer cake and a seam-fix! Thanks for following and not being to shy to comment!!!
