I keep forgetting I have this and so I've never used it. After deciding that I wanted to quilt vertical, parallel lines on a border and I didn't want to use a marking pen - I remembered that I had bought this hera marker. I'd seen people talk about it but I've never used mine. So I dug thru my big basket of miscellaneous stuff and finally found it.
After trying another ruler that didn't work well, I am now using this ruler. It's not super quick but not too bad to measure and mark the lines.
The lines look wonderful. These lines were maked yesterday and they are still very visible.
And here are the lines stitched - almost perfect. And there will be no marks to remove. I'm loving this!!
I also wanted to share my latest finish - it's actually non-quilty. I'm not a super accomplished knitter or crocheter (is that a word???) or obviously photagrapher but I can watch a video and usually figure it out. After looking at a bunch of different designs, this is the shrug that I decided to make.
These are not the greatest pictures but I hope you can see how cute it is. It's just what I wanted, something to keep my shoulders and neck covered without making me too warm. It was actually so much fun, I may make another one.
So this is my new best friend, the hera marker. I had to put a ribbon on because I kept losing it, it's not very big. If you have something you want to mark and are concerned about using a marker on it. try the hera, it just might become your new best friend.
Hope you had some happy time today.
