Soup, blankets and sleep help some but what helps the most is getting packages in the mail!
Apparently I placed some very timely orders last week and both arrived yesterday.
For FloMo I got some new rulers from The Gadget Girls. I've been wanting a set of ovals for a long time. I can use these for continuous curves in blocks, swag borders and tons of other things.
I also got 2 ribbon rulers and these are designed correctly! I have 4 sizes of ribbons here that I can make. I ordered 3/8" rulers this time. That's what they called for for the Innova. I don't think these thicker rulers are absolutely necessary but I thought I'd give them a try. They would have never worked with the APQS foot. I do like that the thicker rulers are clear acrylic instead of the neon colors. I don't love the neon colors.
The second box that arrived was glass. I needed a pack of clear, a couple of transparent colors and several opaque colors.
Mostly, though, I wanted these molds. I'm going to try to make drawer pulls and knobs to replace all of the knobs and pulls in my kitchen. You make these by filling them with frit so I bought a few colors of frit to see what combinations I like. Now I have to do some reading up on how to use these molds. I really hope these work!
I am feeling some better today. I could deal with the cold but the asthma makes me tired. I can feel it loosening up though and that's good. I should be able to do something productive this afternoon!
Tomorrow I'll share my Zombie Ball quilt that I made for Benartex. It's going to be my Blogger's Quilt Festival entry on Friday.
