New Toy!

So as quilters, we all know that notions = toys. I had a whole bunch if credit card rewards that I can now link to Amazon. I had been eyeing a Quick Curves Ruler by Sew Kind of Wonderful for quite some time, but it's hard to justify a $25 ruler; that becomes much easier when it becomes only $1.87 out of pocket. 

Last night to inaugurate sewing curves - my first time when it wasn't a 3D object turned out well. It helps that they have a series of YouTube tutorials to explain how to use the ruler correctly. 

If you'll remember to late June, I posted about a pink block I made for a charity quilt going to a cancer center in Grand Rapids, MI. Rather than just make blocks that would never be used, my practice blocks (that were good enough) were made in the pink theme for Anna to add to the quilt. 

While I was sewing, I had company from Pippa, who is as I write becoming less of a lady at the Spay Spot - friendly reminder it's actually bad for female cats to have repeated heat cycles without having kittens, it can cause major hormonal imbalances leading to cysts and other health issues. But as always, she was my supervisor. She probably won't be jumping quite that high for the next week or two.
