thnksgv1

We’ll be cruising out tonight after The BG gets out of work. We are heading to my Mom’s for the big Turkey Dinner! Yummmmmm. My stomach is all happy and excited.

 

 This year I Thank God for:

*My Mom and Dad, and their good health.

*My little family , and our good health.

*A home to live in with heat, and water, lights, and food.

*Our two ole cars that keep on ticking.

*Cocktails.  (just kidding, but cocktails are good!)

 

I started working on the candy cane quilt yesterday. I figured out the border and drew out, then basted two candy canes to go in the middle.  I will post it when I get the top done.

FABULOUS NOTIONABLES #7

I LOVE this ruler!  Its the Easy Angle. It is yet another lovely tool to help make easy shmeasy half square triangle units.

You simple cut the two fabric’s you are using in strips. You will want to cut the strips 1/2 inch larger than the finished square you want.  So for instance I wanted 3 inch squares so I cut my strips at 3 1/2. 

 You layer the two strips Right Sides Together.

Line the ruler up along the correct line (3 1/2 inch line for me) and cut.

Then you just flip the ruler over and line the ruler up at the correct line again. The black triangle at the bottom helps you with placement.

Now you have perfect 1/2 square triangle ready to sew with a nice flat edge to line up under your presser foot and only one “rabbit ear” to cut off!!
