Just a quick post to show one of my favorite designers' fun tools that's out there. Blue Ribbon Designs Stitch Starter and Sleeve was one of the "smalls" that I finished this winter. The Stitch Starter is a nifty little ruler that is a perfect 3 inch square. It helps with measuring from your finished design for framing or other finishing work, and it helps you figure out just how far 1 or 2 inches from the edge of your fabric you need to be, depending on how much fabric extra you like to leave yourself for finishing. I picked it up in the fall and absolutely love it.
I love Blue Ribbon Designs. They're simple, yet elegant, and so fun to stitch. Head on over to Belinda's blog - she's having a giveaway in celebration of her 100th design! The giveaway closes this Friday, February 25th, so make sure you get your name in! Blue Ribbon Designs Blog
