Happy Tuesday!

How are you all doing on this beautiful Tuesday? I'm enjoying some nice weather here (so unusual). The mold, tree and grass counts are ultra high but I have Allegra! Ha! So lately I know I've been sharing a lot about what the shop is doing because that has been most of my activity--with a little sewing thrown in. I did want to tell you about something I've been using that I just love! It's Lori Holt's Seam Guide:

It is so awesome! It fits on your sewing machine bed and attaches with little removable glue dots so you can take it off if you need to. Those 3 straight lines make it possible to sew triangles and corner squares without marking! You just follow the lines and NO marking!

 I don't know about you but it makes it a lot faster for me. Another thing is that you can follow the line on the right and get a perfect seam allowance. Yes, you can buy these seam guides other places but we have all the colors and a great price and you can buy them HERE. They come in red, aqua, green and pink.

I think this is a perfect gift for your quilting and sewing friends or for a guild secret Santa! And I couldn't go without giving you an update on Blossom. She is a spunky, adorable little girl! 
She's been to the groomer who evened up her hair and it's growing back in pretty quickly. 
You can see what a large area was affected but now there is inch-long sort of sparse hair growing there. Most of the hair on her tail is gone but I still think she looks adorable. Have a wonderful day! XO and cheery wave from Bev

Looks like an interesting seam guide... are the scallops functional too, or just for pretty? :)

Makes me wonder how much time I would save by not having to mark the fabric. I'm all for anything that lets me sew more instead of cutting or marking.

Thanks for the update and pictures of Blossom. She's very cute and it looks like you both needed each other. I've been looking at those seam guides. I love HSTs but the marking does get tedious.

this sounds a great ruler, will check out and see if it is available here in the UK. Blossom looks very much at home with you and seems a loveable character
