Making Waves.

Hello, Yesterday I used my wavy edge ruler. It is so easy to use and very effective. I bought this ruler at the recent Stitches and Craft Show. I also downloaded some easier to follow instructions as the instructions that came with the ruler didn't show some of the major points.
I will be using this ruler quite a bit on this quilt as it has a Beach theme. I have stitched up the Scarecrow block in Sam's block of the month. Instead of stitching the scarecrow I added a button and did a little more stitching on the block. Sam is also having a 100 post giveaway of the some material and a journal cover.

Although we are having rain and strong winds here today I noticed that my Dutch Iris have come out. I just love these. I think this is one of the flowers that suits purple. They are so easy to grow. I do nothing to them although this year they have got some lupin mulch keeping them supplied with nutrients. I think today will be spent inside keeping away from the weather.
Happy days.
Bev C

Hello Bev, thanks so much for stopping by and leaving me a comment which leds me to your blog. Enjoyed reading your post and admire your quilt things. I had tried that last year or was that the year before...oh well, i do like it but leaving on the island there's not much choices of fabrics and they are quite expensive. I think too i am more addicted to cross stitch.
Love the flowers growing at your garden, not much at mine right now and it sure feels Autumn is in as it's very windy and cloudy today.
Have a good day.
