I have a fun new ruler to play with! Amanda of The Quilted Fish has created this great new ruler to make diamonds. And make diamonds it does. Look at this amazing pattern she has for sale, using her fancy diamond ruler.
This is what the ruler looks like.
Amanda's Design Team is busy working on tutorials to show you just how easy and fun it is to use this ruler. I did some experimenting today. Of course, I couldn't just leave the diamonds alone, had to try and make it into a rectangle. This was one of my attempts. Notice the very crooked lines on top and bottom!
I made a lot of this, in several attempts to create a rectangle=)
Okay, this last part is not bragging, even though it is totally going to come across like it is. You guys are my quilting buddies, so I feel you would share in my excitement=) I got this in the mail last week.
My very own business cards. I only ordered a few because honestly what am I going to do with them? I figured it might be slightly lame if I photo transferred them onto fabric and made a full length coat out of them. Wouldn't that be funny if I did and then entered it into the Wearable Category in our National Juried Show? That would be hysterical. To me anyway=)
I hope I can make the Association proud. I have a couple of goals while I am on the Board of Directors. One is stupid huge..like ginormously crazy big. I will certainly work hard and try my best at it. Time will tell.
