Today I was up at 4:30am to catch a flight to Vegas…I’m takin Nick on his first flight/mini weekend vacation since his surgery, Vegas is really the only place he likes to go…so when I got up I needed to link up my day 11 post and then proceeded to somehow lose it all…then some divine intervention happend and I somehow got it back…whewww…so I will be posting the next couple of day from Las Vegas! I am meeting Vegas Val my machine quilter tomorrow to hang out and the four of us will see a show…
View from 52nd floor hotel room…day

DAY 10-Our newest rulers…Wool Stem Cutting Rulers…3/16″ a definate must for wool applique!
here is a close-up of the right hand side…the other side the numbers go the other direction for left handed cutters…
This is for sure a needful thing….I like being effiecient…and when cutting stems for my wool projects I do not like to cut them one at a time…
It goes like this if you do not have this ruler and only a regular ruler or our 5×15 with 1-3/16″ line on it
Iron fusible to wool needed for stems…
trim up the long edge
find 3/16″ on ruler
place ruler on edge of fusible side of wool
pick up ruler
move stem out of the way
lay ruler back down
find 3/16″ again
Place ruler on edge
repeat…all that again and again and again..until you have as many as needed
Now with this 3/16″ ruler it is like this…
trim up edge
how many stems do we need? 6? line up the edge of the fusible side of the wool with the 6 line on the ruler.
slide to 5
slide to 4
slide to 3
slide to 2
slide to 1 cut
OOOOHHHH that was SSSSSOOO much faster…
