Is it Christmas?

It feels like Christmas when I get packages in the mail!
No just my lucky day!  First my internet order of Aurfil thread arrived....anyone who knows me, knows I don't usually shop online, but this was too tempting for words.  Totally justifying, for my hand applique!
But best of all..
Ta da, my prize from Quilt Bee, 
a Lemoyne Star ruler!  
The ruler makes stars from 3 to 12 inches, all without Y seams,  so no excuse now, will have to start making some star blocks.
Thanks Marie at Quilt Bee Blog
Happy quilting Sue.


  1. Sounds like it must be Christmas, in fact I have been putting up the tree and decorations this morning, ready for the weekend's Christmas in July!

  2. Fun goodies in the mail.
    Sounds like a handy ruler. I look forward to seeing some stars twinkling on your blog in the future. :)

  3. Fun mail with your rainbow of Aurifil threads and the new ruler. Can't wait to see how it works.

  4. Enjoy your new toy Sue. I haven't gotten back to playing with mine but there are several ideas that I have for it. All I need is time!
